THE NORTH PROVES TO BE A HOTSPOT FOR TECH PROFESSIONALS

Friday 15th May 2015

The North of England is the definitely the place to be for Tech professionals.  Recruitment International reported recently that according to the IT job board survey of salary expectations among tech professionals in the UK, the north of England and Scotland offer the most favourable salary expectations and progression for technology workers.

SALARIES INCREASING
A survey of 750 techies reported by Recruitment International shows clear signs that the increase in the sector is showing greater momentum outside of London. Those working outside of London were more likely to receive a pay rise in 2014.  Analysis shows that on average 78% of permanent tech staff employed outside of London experienced a salary increase last year compared to 74% working in the capital.

RATES INCREASING
A similar story can be told for IT contractors.  Hourly rates/daily rates were increased by 21%, 14%, 10% in the north/north west and Scotland compared to just 2% in London.

NORTHERN TECH HUB
Jamie Bowler, marketing director of The IT Job Board in the UK, stated, “It is highly encouraging to see buoyant growth for tech specialists now starting to emerge across the country as business and tech hubs across Britain start to buzz. Whilst London’s 'Tech City' will continue to attract much of the media spotlight, what we are seeing on the employment front is growth across the country at all levels - no doubt helped by lower living and business costs in centers outside of London and the emergence of vibrant new-start businesses around university cities.”

GOOGLE’S DIGITAL GARAGE
Google announced their first location for their Digital Garage concept here in Leeds, which shows the reputation the region is building for its tech community.
