IT workers’s salaries have risen by at least two per cent over the past year, according to new research.

According to statistics released by recruitment firm CVScreen which surveyed almost 7,500 IT jobs posted online, the average salary in the IT sector stood at £36,818 at the beginning of the year.

Perhaps not surprisingly, IT directors, programme managers and software development managers were found to be the higest earners, bringing in between £55,286 and £95,000.

Despite boasting smaller salaries, positions involving PHP development, SharePoint and .Net were found to be the most prevalent.

PC support and VB development were found to offer fewer vacancies, while demand for SAP, Lotus and DB2 skills also declined.
