Head of Content,

Data released by VocaLink this month shows that the annual rate of take home pay growth across the UK private sector, as measured by the VocaLink FTSE350 Take Home Pay Index, remained steady at 2.3% in the three months to the end of October 2015. While the upward trend in take home pay growth appears to have stalled, the rate remains well above the 1.6% recorded in the same period a year ago.
