How much the best paid workers in 20 professions earn

LONDON -- The average household has 27,200 to spend after tax and pension contributions, according to the Office for National Statistics.

A large part of that disposable income is based upon how much people earn in their jobs.

Obviously, salaries vary wildly by region, seniority, and gender, and of course, profession.

The highest paid bankers, for example, earn many times the salaries of the highest earning charity workers. But which profession's highest earners are the best paid.

Business Insider took data from salary benchmarking site Emolument, which analysed the salaries of 52,000 workers across 20 different jobs areas, pulling out the highest earners in each profession. Understandably, bankers and other financial service workers were right at the top of the tree, but mining and energy workers surprise, coming in in third place.
