Permanent IT salaries in the UK have risen by 4.1 per cent over the past 12 months, according to research released this week.
A comprehensive study by IT recruitment specialist CV Screen monitored over 11,000 advertised positions in the UK during the first quarter of 2008.
The survey found that the average advertised salary for an IT professional in the UK is now £34,217.
"The high demand for IT professionals has continued to put upward pressure on IT salaries," said CV Screen director Matthew Iveson.
"There are certain technical skills where there is still a considerable war for talent. Candidates with strong skills in areas such as .Net, C# and PHP are inundated with opportunities."
Iveson added that the IT jobs market is holding up well with regards to the outlook for salaries in 2008, in spite of the wider economic problems.
"The rising costs of living in the UK will see more candidates seeking to move for financial reasons, thus putting further upward pressure on IT salaries, " he said.
