Tech and health care are well-represented on Glassdoor's list, but so are jobs in other fields.

If you want to make good money, it helps to know the skill of computer coding.

If tech is not your forte, or you don’t have time to learn a new skill, you might want to consider one of the following jobs. They come with decent pay — at least $45,000 a year — and saw the highest pay bumps over the past year, according to a new report from Glassdoor.

Specifically, the jobs and recruiting website found that median base pay for these top 13 jobs increased by 5 percent to 11 percent over the past year. That’s compared with a national average wage and salary increase of 2.5 percent over a 12-month period, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Labor.

While the growing fields of tech and health care are represented by several jobs on Glassdoor’s list, you will also find a variety of other jobs, from sales manager to communications manager.

More good news: Not only do most of these jobs not require complex tech skills, a couple of them don’t even require a bachelor’s degree. Take certified nursing assistants, for example. They don’t need a college degree but instead must enroll in an accredited CNA program to earn their credentials.

The 13 jobs on Glassdoor’s list are:

  1. Certified nursing assistant: 11 percent increase since 2015 (to a median base pay of $50,000 in 2016)
  2. Sales manager: 11 percent increase (to $73,000)
  3. Implementation consultant: 7 percent increase (to $75,000)
  4. Recruiter: 7 percent increase (to $45,000)
  5. Registered nurse: 7 percent increase (to $68,000)
  6. Media planner: 7 percent increase (to $45,000)
  7. Data analyst: 7 percent increase (to $65,000)
  8. College admissions representative: 7 percent increase (to $44,745)
  9. Insurance claims adjuster: 6 percent increase (to $47,500)
  10. Marketing coordinator: 6 percent increase (to $45,000)
  11. Health care case manager: 6 percent increase (to $45,000)
  12. Mortgage underwriter: 5 percent increase (to $60,000)
  13. Communications manager: 5 percent increase (to $84,000)
