the average IT Salary in the Capital now stands at £37,707

CV Screen's latest IT salary survey shows that IT Salaries in London have fallen by 2.3% over the last 12 months.

The survey by the specialist IT Recruitment Agency monitored over 35 job roles in London, from over 2000 advertised IT positions in Q4 2008 and found that the average IT Salary in the Capital now stands at £37,707.

The specialist recruiter also saw a 24% increase in the number of London based candidates registering on their database in comparison with the same period in 2007.

CV Screen’s Account Manager for London, Alex Lawson, who compiled the survey, “The fall in IT Salaries in London was to be expected given the challenging economic climate and the increase in candidate availability will continue to put downward pressure on IT Salaries in London over the next 12 months.”

Despite this, there are still companies looking for talented IT professionals in the Capital as Lawson explained further “We continue to see a high demand for candidates with PHP, .Net and C# development skills.”

Lawson concluded “The demand for IT staff is slowing at a much slower rate than other sectors, which is as a result of the critical nature that technology plays within every organisation. There is still demand and competition for quality candidates and we would expect the IT Jobs market in London to continue to be more resilient than other sectors in 2009.”
