IT Salary Guide Yorkshire – Quarter 1 2017


  • IT Management has remained largely the same across approx half of the job roles researched. We noticed the odd incremental rise of some 5-10% but only for some roles
  • Developer demand continues to prove difficult for employers, with salaries still rising some 5-10%. Many organisations are making it difficult for others as they package their offers with incredible added benefits, this tactic is certainly turning heads in the market. Furthermore, retaining staff is proving as important as ever therefore the dual pronged attack of attraction and retention has never been so important.  Both .Net and Java rise again with PHP holding steady in the mid to late 30’s.
  • The biggest mover has been the introduction of a huge hike in salary for junior developers and to a whopping 32.5k.  Many organisations feel that if they attract the malleable and academically brilliant, at the beginning of their careers, then it proves more fruitful for them in the long term.
  • Infrastructure sees a continued rise due to demand outstripping availability.  Salaries on average also increase some 5-10%
