CV Screen, a leading UK IT recruitment agency, has conducted a comprehensive study of the IT job market and found that salaries for permanent IT jobs have risen by 4.1 percent over the last 12 months. The average advertised salary for an IT professional is now ₤34,217.

For the purpose of the study, the recruitment agency monitored more than 11,000 IT jobs advertised in the UK in the first quarter of 2008.

CV Screen’s managing director Matthew Iveson said:

“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.”

He added that there was still a “considerable war for talent” for IT professionals with technical skills in areas such as .Net, C# and PHP and that the “continued high demand for IT professionals has continued to put upward pressure on IT salaries.”
