However, the pay gap between men and women narrowed slightly, and female workers saw the biggest growth in salary.
According to the data the typical full-time employee earned £26,200 in the year to April, up 1.4% on the previous 12 months.
The median gross annual earnings for full-time female employees was up 1.9% to £22,900, with that for male employees rising 1.2% to £28,400.
