IT jobs salaries have increased, figures indicate

The salaries of workers in the UK's IT industry rose by two per cent between 2009 and 2010, new figures indicate.

According to statistics released by recruitment firm CVScreen which surveyed almost 7,500 IT jobs posted online, the average salary stood at £36,818 at the beginning of the year, CIO reports.

IT directors, programme managers and software development managers were found to be the highest earners, bringing in between £55,286 and £95,000.

Despite boasting smaller salaries, positions involving PHP development, SharePoint and .Net were found to be most prevalent.

PC support and VB development were found to offer fewer vacancies, while demand for SAP, Lotus and DB2 skills also declined.

In other news, figures from the Ashdown Group Jobs Index show that almost three per cent more computing and technology jobs were advertised last month compared to April.

Ashdown Group director John Lynes said that despite government cuts, the private sector is still particularly interested in employees with "in-demand development skill sets".
