IT Salary Guide Leeds

IT Salary Guide Yorkshire – Q4 2020

  • Due to the pandemic and elements of Brexit, we find a distinct dearth of people across IT, moving into 2021.  Biggest movers, in terms of salary increase, seem to be infrastructure and development (in that order and generally speaking)
  • .Net continues it’s upward trend with .Net Core skills in high demand
  • IT engineering skills are highly sought after, with the need to mobilise staff to work from home and continuous IT support thereafter. Once IT platforms are developed and implemented next comes, remote IT support; which has proven challenging for many orgs.
  • Low level / entry level development need continues to rise as orgs look for the bright stars of the future; as opposed to luring top end skills £££ on a routine basis.  Build for the future seems, to be the theme
  • Attraction will be key moving into 2021.  Employees will be nervous about their positions and therefore moving roles, may prove, too much of a worry .  We expect a surge of hiring to take place between March – July 2021; largely as the vaccine and other elements take hold, such as a firm EU/UK relationship.  Fingers crossed for normality across the economy.  If we leave you with some good news then salaries continue to rise well ahead of inflation / cost of living – in our sector – and once demand and confidence returns the I.T world looks extremely resilient to future worldwide issues.  Technology it seems has kept the world afloat in such awful times.  Good health.
