Tech salaries up five per cent in 2010

Six quarters of growth

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Last year saw continued growth in demand for IT staff, and a five per cent increase in salaries.

Finance positions were down six per cent, but demand for both permanent and contract staff working in retail increased.

The most sought-after skills by employers were SQL, C and C#, although C saw a four per cent drop in demand.

In the second half of 2010 job adverts for Agile and VMWare both increased, according to jobs site CWJobs.

Richard Nott, website director at CWJobs, said the figures showed the resilience of the IT market which increased throughout the year.

But despite growth of eight per cent in the second and third quarters, and a five per cent increase in job adverts in the final quarter, job ad levels overall are still half of what they were in 2007 or 2008. ®
