I'm thinking about moving from New York to London. I have 7 years of experience at ad agencies. I'm looking at jobs like "marketing manager" at a brand or tech company or hybrid operations/growth roles. I'm not sure I could jump to a biz dev director role in an entirely new market, which is why I'm looking at generalist roles where my experience would count. From an initial search, it seems like London salaries are significantly lower than New York. Any recommendations on how to navigate this?

NYC Sr Art Director salary question: looking at the real agency salary excel sheet that is floating around, it looks like salary for a Sr AD in NYC is around $120k.
