The career path you choose has an enormous effect on your whole life, in terms of wealth and happiness. Which careers can bring you both?

It is often said that choosing your career is far too important a decision to make when you are a mere teenager, yet that is of course what all of us are expected to do.

We all know that a good work/life balance is important, and that the career we follow needs to be something we will enjoy and find rewarding. But with all that said, most people work to live rather than live to work, and very few of us would go out to work tomorrow morning if they stopped paying us.

So what are the best paying careers out there? And is it too late to change our mind if we have made a terrible mistake?

Airline Pilot

Who hasn't dreamt of putting on those Ray-Bans and channelling their inner Tom Cruise? Well, the role of an airline pilot might not quite be “Top Gun” but there is an undeniable glamour, and the opportunity to earn up to £140,000 per year.

Of course, it is not something you can walk straight into. You need an Airline Transport Pilot's Licence (ATPL), which means 18 months of full-time training that costs around £75,000.

You will also need to be in tip-top medical condition, with good hearing, eyesight and general fitness. For a job that involves international travel, a working knowledge of one or two foreign languages is definitely a bonus, too.


If you prefer to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, there are few jobs that pay better than a lawyer. The average lawyer earns £67,500 per year, and top barristers can bring in well over £250,000.

To reach those heights takes years of hard work, both practical and academic, starting with a good law degree. From there, you will need to build up experience and pass the Bar Course Aptitude Test.

Only the best can reach the highest echelons – top lawyers and barristers are able to analyse and retain large amounts of complex information, and draw conclusions that they can present in a compelling and persuasive way. That means excellent written and presentation skills, and confidence in speaking publicly in a high-pressure environment.


Everyone needs a good doctor from time to time, and it is no secret that top doctors earn top-notch salaries. Of course, this is another career that involves many years of training, both theoretical and practical, before you can reach those heights.

The good news is that medical practitioners are in short supply, so NHS funding might be available to help with your tuition fees and expenses.

Once qualified, there are many specialities to choose from, but a General Practitioner can expect to earn up to £85,000 per year.

Police Officer

There can be few jobs that are as challenging, but also as rewarding, as a career in the police force. But you might be surprised to hear that it can also be an extremely well-paid job, with senior officers earning around £60,000 per year.

The structure is very hierarchical, but after the first two years, there are a variety of career paths available, such as traffic, anti-fraud, counter terrorism and firearms.

One thing they all have in common is the chance to supplement your salary through overtime opportunities and a pension scheme that most careers can only dream of.

What Our Clients Say...

Last night, we had the opportunity to have a good chat about things, and he was (I felt for the first time in a long time), upbeat about what he needs to think about and get done.

He showed me the test results which I think has given him a real confidence boost, as well as having consolidated a lot of things for him in his own mind.

And your post call summary has also had an effect, as he seems to be much more ‘in the zone’, giving him the impetus with a plan on how he gets things done.

Heartfelt thanks from me, his mum, as it has felt like quite a difficult time for all of us!

Mark is passionate about his work and very sensitive to the needs of his clients. I was lucky to work with Mark in the international surrounding where he shared knowledge and skills regarding career counselling with the group of youth workers coming from 8 European countries.

Through his work he challenged many limiting beliefs and helped me and others to realize our potentials in a better light and get ideas for helping others do the same.

I strongly recommend Mark for any challenging task since he proved to be flexible, process oriented but also having results in mind, and the most important of all, very positive and inspiring co-worker.
My daughter Lucie and I both gained a lot from your talk and found your approach to finding what the right path may be, very positive.

Thank you!
Before I contacted Mark, I didn't believe that I could pursue the career I really wanted but after a few sessions it began to feel that my dreams weren't so unrealistic after all.

By the end of the course, I had the confidence to make steps towards getting the job I always wanted.

Mark was our trainer in a 7 day International Training Course on topics of youth career guidance for youth workers from 8 countries. His work is amazing - aside from providing skills for our work, he helped us to think over our lives and things we want to do. This training course and his energy gave me a new wave of enthusiasm for both - working with youth and developing myself. I hope I will have the opportunity to work with him again.
I came to Mark to gain focus and direction as I was awash with ideas and not knowing which to follow. Mark guided me through exercises which systematically drew out my interests, skills and preferences. I am now in a position to drive forward on key ideas with clear goals on what I want to achieve and how I'll know when I have. Thanks Mark!

I had no clear idea of where I wanted my career to go, except that I didn’t want to carry on with what I was doing. Working with Mark has been instrumental in giving me the right questions, and gaining a good understanding of myself so that I could change direction. His sessions were well structured whilst giving sufficient freedom for different lines of enquiry. And it’s a long time since I enjoyed homework, but I really did relish the work he suggested between meetings. I would thoroughly recommend having Mark coach you through your career conundrums.

I worked with Mark during a time of huge personal transition. He gave me invaluable insight into myself, which has had a direct impact on the course of the last 6 months of my life. The coaching sessions I had with him prompted me to take action in the direction of the career and life I really want, rather than doing what I think I 'should' be doing to please other people or fit in. He also got me thinking very differently about the options available to me, which opened doors both in my mind and externally in the world. Mark has outstanding interpersonal skills, which really helped me be at ease and take risks to be completely honest in our sessions. I highly recommend him and his service.
