Interest in the issue of career progression has been growing, fuelled by a decade of stagnant productivity and pay growth (even before the COVID-19 crisis) and concerns that changes in the labour market, such as the casualisation of work in the gig economy, are making it harder for some groups to progress.

However, debate on this topic is taking place in the absence of much hard evidence on the question at its core; little is known about how pay and career progression have been changing. This briefing provides new evidence on how pay and occupational progression during the crucial early stages of careers have changed over the last few decades.
