IT Salaries in London continue to outstrip those in the South East region report leading IT Recruitment Agency CV Screen.
The analysis of over 4000 IT positions found that salaries had increased by 4.3% over the last 12 months. This compared to the 3.4% increase in the South East region reported by CV Screen’s Jason Price last week.
CV Screen’s Account Manager for London, Alex Lawson, who put together the survey, found that the average permanent IT Salary in London now stands at £38,577.
Lawson commented on the findings, “There is obviously a premium attributed to working in London and the survey shows that salaries are 15% higher than those in the rest of the South East region.”
The IT recruiter added “The London IT jobs market remains strong and we are currently experiencing very high demand for staff at the beginning of 2008.”
Lawson concluded “Obviously many commentators are predicting the next 12 months to be more testing but the early signs are that the IT jobs market is holding up well.”
