East Central London (EC) has highest advertised salary at �44,459

It's perhaps no surprise that London postcodes are home to the highest-advertised salaries - but more so that some northern and Scottish areas do not lag far behind, research suggests.
The postcode area of London that is home to the Bank of England and insurance market Lloyd�s of London has the highest salaries, with an average advertised pay at �44,459, according to analysis of 200,000 job vacancies by jobs website Adzuna.
East Central London (EC), which is home to many City firms as well as many tech start-ups, also has way more opportunities than any other areas, even within London, with more than 37,000 vacancies advertised in February.
That�s four times more vacancies than the second top paying postcode - West Central London (WC), which includes Westminster - which had nearly 9,500 vacancies up for grabs and an average advertised salary of �43,646.
But while these London postcodes are the only two where annual advertised pay averages more than �40,000, there are some areas in the North and Scotland that offer some of the highest salaries in the UK.

Postcode DG, which includes the Scottish market town of Dumfries, was the third highest-paying postcode in the UK with salaries of �31,903 on average. 
This is because of some highly paid jobs advertised in postcode DG1 - like a tax supervisor, an anaesthesia consultant and a radiologist consultant - which mean that the actual average salary for this area was �48,000.
However, opportunities in this area were much fewer and apart, with a total of just 92 vacancies advertised in DG, Adzuna said.
