I am planning to move from Dublin, Ireland to the UK. My base salary is about € 80,000 before tax and I have benefits like health insurance and retirement contribution from the employer.
I have seen jobs equivalent to mine in the UK being advertised at a significantly low rate of £ 40,000-50,000.
I have tried using Numbeo for cost of living comparison. There is no way of living in the UK with £ 40,000 when the cost of living seems comparable between Ireland and the UK.
Can someone who is living in the UK or even better, who have worked in Ireland and the UK, provide an insight into what I should be expecting in terms of salary?
Background: PhD biochemistry, 7+ years of industry experience. To avoid industry bias, I have looking into the salaries for data science and ML roles where the salary in Ireland is around € 85,000 (several years of experience) and £ 50,000-60,000 in London.
