Best way to make a US comparable salary whilst living in the UK? I find it seems more difficult to crack a higher salary here

I would have said become a contractor, but IR35 killed that one.

It just doesn't happen here unfortunately apart from maybe in incredibly niche firms that are willing to pay for the one in a million expertise.

Even cracking £100k is difficult here as people see it as a ceiling.

I am on £90k and currently looking for a new role and people all look like you have just told them you ran over their dog when you tell them salary expectations of anything north of £100k.

It's weird as noone would blink if you asked for £50k when your last role was £40k. Even though the increase is identical 🤷‍♂️

This is so true, can confirm that when saying your salary expectations 90k+, it’s just less 1% in the market who is willing to pay that

When you say comparable do you mean like $150k or like $350k+? Cos I feel like the former is feasible but idk about the latter
