Hi everyone,

sorry if this question seems too straightforward, but I was wondering if any of you has an idea of how much an in-house editor working for an agency is usually paid in the UK...

you can also reply privately, if that's more convenient for you.

thanks in advance.

It really depends on a lot of different variables, and most of it is not just your job the responsibilities and teh company, but the cost of living / housing etc...

.......not much.

I applied for an in-house proofreading with some translation post at an agency in the north of England a few months ago and was eventually offered a salary of 19K per year which I declined (I have 4 years of translation experience and 2 degrees). In London and the South East I have seen similar jobs at agencies advertised at a bit more (21-23K). Most agencies pay very low rates to their in-house staff in the UK.
