Annual Payrise this year

Not sure a similar thread exists. So thought to start one.

Whats the general consensus with regards to payrises across the UK. And wondered if people would share what they have either recently gotten or are due to get.

I will go first lol!

I work in the private sector and in 2021.. there was no payrise due to covid, business issues and trying to preserve jobs. As probably was the case across most businesses

Now in 2022...we have just been informed of a 3.25% rise. which seems ok, but will be eaten by 6%+ inflation and the NHS surcharge coming in. but hey i guess i should be grateful at least.

Wonder what else people are due to receive this year. pls do share below.

    Public sector

    Last year £0

    This year, we had encouraging signals back in January, but that seems to have been watered down somewhat. I have a sneaking suspicion that it may well be the newly promotion that do well, those that have been in grade a number of years will get a token amount due to some nuances in the pay scales. 

    Should find out for definite in the next 4 weeks, either way it's not going to match inflation. 
    My only hope is that they may start to pay me for the qualification they have tried to mandate...

    Highest pay rise in last 10 years was 3.5%. This year it's 7.08% but this is simply to keep our pay around 30 pence above the minimum wage.

    Increases in both the minimum wage and living wage skew the overall figures.

    Private sector - Getting a bit of a bonus, but still waiting on news of my annual review to see if my salary will change and what any annual pay rise for this year will be (it did last year by about 2% iirc)


    The job I had before this one had no annual payrise at all, it would only change if NMW was going to overtake it though it was always set a bit above.
