IT salaries down and out

Our survey says...

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A survey of advertised IT salaries reveals a slight fall since last year, with little prospect of increases in the immediate future.

Researchers looked at 6,000 advertised positions and found the average salary for a permanent IT position is now £36,092, down one per cent on last year. All the ads appeared in the first quarter of 2009.

Mathew Iveson, a director at CV Screen, which carried out the research, said: "With surplus candidates still looking for work I can't see these figures changing much in the next year, depending on the speed of any recovery."

Iveson said there was some sign of improvement for contractors and temporary staff. He said: "We're seeing some people getting someone in for a month or two to try and demonstrate to the FD that it is worthwhile, that's the only glimmer of hope right now."

Some skills remain in demand including .Net, SharePoint, Java and PHP.
