These days, getting a degree or some other kind of further education is no longer a guarantee of a high pay; in fact, it is possible that you may be able to make a great deal more if you do not have one.
There are jobs available right now that pay as much as £68,793 annually and do not need any kind of formal degree to apply.
The employment website Adzuna came at this conclusion after conducting an analysis of one million open positions that were being advertised and selecting only those for which informal qualifications were not required for application.
In all, they discovered nine "unskilled" occupations that paid more salaries than the average income that was offered for professional employment, which was £35,773.
There were over twenty positions that earned an average of thirty thousand pounds or more.
Andrew Hunter, one of the co-founders of Adzuna, made the following statement: "Jobs that do not need a formal certification may nonetheless be incredibly rewarding."
The highest-paying career that does not need a degree or certification was that of a "ethical hacker," a position in which one tests the security of websites and businesses by attempting to hack into them.
This indicates that computer abilities, creative thinking, and experience are more important than official degrees.
"Private chauffeur" is the second top paid occupation for individuals without credentials, with an average income of £46,500, while bouncers may also earn more than £40,000 per year.
There are a number of positions within the public sector that pay well; for example, military security posts and Army officer positions pay more than £39,000 on average annually.
"Jobseekers without the rubber stamp of a degree or diploma should be ready to work hard for these positions," Hunter continued. "They should be prepared to show off soft skills like communication and emotional intelligence at interview and prepare for the fitness and agility tests required by more physical positions in the Army and Police."
