The Sport has compiled a list of the top 10 locksmith salaries in the UK and Europe. Read more With a growing demand for locksmith jobs, it’s becoming harder and harder for people to find a job in the industry.
The latest data from the Bureau of Statistics shows the number of locksmith positions worldwide has fallen by almost half from 8 million in 2015 to 6 million in 2020.
However, there are still plenty of jobs available and the UK has the highest number of lockpicking jobs per capita in the world.
This year, the UK is in second place behind Germany and ahead of Belgium.
In total, there were 6,849,000 locksmith roles in the country, according to the BIS data.
The biggest gainers from the fall were the UK, where the number rose by 20 per cent, followed by Germany and the Netherlands.
Locksmiths are paid an average of £1,200 a week, compared to an average pay of £822 a week in the US.
Although the BSI doesn’t publish data for the UK itself, the BPI data for January 2017 shows the UK’s total annual lockpicking salary was £3.9m.
A lockpicking job can usually take up to 12 weeks to complete, according the BPS data.
This means a full-time lockpicking career in the U.K. could take you around eight years.
There are some perks that come with the job though.
The biggest one is that a lot of locks are given away for free to people who do a good job and don’t need to do the work themselves.
Another perk is that lockpicking can also be part of a broader career.
