And in the most lucrative roles, you can take home a typical salary of £70,000 a year.

James Neave, head of data science at Adzuna, said: Today, many employers are recognizing the value of self-taught or on-the-job skills, and they are willing to look beyond formal education when evaluating candidates.

“Job seekers without a degree should highlight their accomplishments throughout their careers and practical skills relevant to the job ad in their CVs.

“Consider emphasizing industry certifications and job-related training.”

Topping the list of highest paying office jobs is a scrum master, earning an average of nearly £70,000 a year, according to data from Adzuna.

The Scrum master acts as the IT and technology development project manager.

There are courses you can take to train to become a scrum master, but there is no strict path to this job.

Or if you love throwing parties, being an event planner could be right up your street and you can expect to earn as little as £37,000.
