The streets of London town may not be paved with gold, but they're still the best place in the UK to find a top paying IT job.

This 'revelation' comes from a survey of UK salaries, which shows that London-based IT directors can earn up to £202,000 per year.

This hefty pay packet belongs to IT directors in the telecoms and new media sectors. Those working in London are likely to get paid up to 55 per cent more than the UK average for their position, according to a survey by TMP Worldwide.

For example, the top salary for the same position in Ireland is £170,000, £147,000 in the Midlands, and £102,000 in Scotland.

Similarly, Web designers can expect to earn up to £47,000 per year in London, or £45,000 in Ireland and £37,500 in the Midlands.

Meanwhile, staff nurses in Britain earn an average of £18,310, with a £3,000 bonus if they work in London, according to figures from the Royal College of Nursing. Senior or consultant nurses can look forward to their salaries peaking at around £40,000. ®
