REVEALED: The 10 best paid trades across the UK

The business comparison experts at Bionic have created a UK Trade Index, mapping the top paid trades across the UK.

The Bionic trade index looked at 10 of the highest populated cities in the UK outside of London, to find the trade jobs available and the average salary per trade in each city. London was omitted from the index to avoid skewing the results because of the sheer size and density of the population.
