What is an Executive Chef Salary on Average?
There are few careers as stressful as being a chef. The pressure of getting meals right is not for the faint-hearted. Kitchens rely on seamless unity in order to work properly, and that’s why they follow a rigid hierarchy system. At the bottom of the kitchen pile is the dishwasher – the person who washes the pots and pans – and at the top is the executive chef, sometimes referred to as the group chef. This type of chef bears a lot of responsibility, especially if they work for a chain restaurant and have several branches to look after.
Despite the ‘chef’ part of their title, executive chefs do little cooking. Unlike a marketing executive, the ‘executive’ part of their title is indicative of their seniority and places them directly above everyone else. It’s not uncommon for the executive chef to own or have shares in the restaurant they work at, though this doesn’t mean their salary is astronomical. Typically speaking, an average executive chef salary falls somewhere between £40k and £50k per annum.
What is a Legal Executive Salary?
Any career in the law field will require a certain degree of training, and this means salaries can range from basic entry roles of less than £20k to in excess of £100k per year, though this depends on the specific role. Legal executives are different from lawyers and solicitors, and this is reflected in their salaries which is a direct representation of the skills and duties required.
Legal executives typically undertake many of the same responsibilities as a solicitor, but they tend to be more specialised. They don’t require quite as much training because they choose one area of law from the get-go and stick with it. Whilst this means it’s cheaper and shorter to become qualified as a legal executive, it’s difficult to move to different areas because much of the training is centred around one specific topic, which means a legal executive generally has less broad knowledge than a solicitor. When starting out, a legal executive can expect to earn anywhere from £15k to £28k. Following three years of work experience and upon completion of becoming a chartered legal executive, the salary can rise to upwards of £55k.
