A comprehensive study by headhunter specialists has found that Permanent IT Salaries in the UK have risen by 4.1% over the last 12 months. The in depth analysis of the IT jobs market which monitored over 11 thousand advertised positions in the UK during the first quarter this year has concluded that the average advertised salary for an IT professional in the UK is now £34,217. Headhunting companies have seen a high demand for IT professionals, the trend has continued to put upward increases on IT Salaries. With regards to the outlook for salaries in 2008, we conclude the IT Jobs market is holding up well in spite of the wider economic problems. It is likely that as a result of the rising costs of living in the UK that more candidates will seek to move for financial reasons, thus putting further upward pressure on IT salaries.
