Welcome to Randstad Technologies’ 2014 IT Salary Survey and recruitment trends review. Based on the responses of 880 IT professionals from across the UK, the survey combines qualitative examination of the IT recruitment market with sector specific data analysis, which has been reviewed and validated by our specialist team of IT recruitment consultants.
Aside from documenting specific remuneration trends, the salary survey offers an insight into current IT hiring trends as well as employee insight into what potential applicants of the future expect from employers.
Demand for IT professionals is increasing, which means that competition to attract and secure the best ‘talent’ is fierce. Candidate-led market positioning puts skilled IT professionals in a position of great power,
as jobseekers experience an increased choice of roles and employers, as well as increased opportunity to secure above-average pay and benefits packages. Secondary to pay and benefits, personal development and career progression opportunities are imperative when it comes to securing the right employer or attracting the right candidate.
New-found market confidence is encouraging a wave of contracting opportunities for both clients and candidates, with London leading the way in its adoption of new, flexible ways of working. Organisations are
identifying the ever-increasing need to improve their IT infrastructure in order to remain competitive, and IT professionals are in search of a better work-life balance and high rates of pay; both of which can be
found in the contractor market.
