IT STILL BUOYANT
With the current gloom and doom about the economic downturn, it’s good to know one sector at least is staying bouyant. If you’re thinking of going into IT the good news is salaries for permanent positions in the sector have risen by 4.1 per cent in the last 12 months. According to a study by IT recruitment specialist CV Screen, the average advertised salary is now £34,217.
Matthew Iveson of CV Screen says: ‘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, more candidates will seek to move for financial reasons, thus putting further upward pressure on IT salaries.’
