The pay gap between IT workers in the North and the South has widened, according to IT employers group E-Skills UK.
The group's research found that salaries have widened in the past five years in contrast to a closing of the gap in other sectors overall.
E-Skills UK found that IT workers in the North are paid an average 35 per cent less than those in the South. In 2001 the gap was 33 per cent. Across all sectors the difference has narrowed from 38 to 31 per cent over the same period.
But lower rates of pay appear to be a factor in attracting more work to the North with IT jobs expanding three times faster than in London in the past four years.
The Office for National Statistics reported that annual IT sector revenues in the North have more than doubled from £2.3bn to £4.8bn since 1998, while in London revenues grew just 30 per cent from £8.3bn to £10.5bn.
The North will also benefit from the trend to move some Civil Service jobs to the region over the next few years, as well as from many BBC departments moving to Manchester.
London's IT salary figures are affected by the high number of top percentile wage earners from finance, insurance and consultancy being based in the capital.
