IT professionals in the South East earn up to 20% more than their counterparts in the North, according to recruitment agency CV Screen.

Salaries in the South East (not including London) have shot up in the last two years, it said. Salaries in this region are now 10% higher than the UK average, compared with 3% in 2010. In London average salaries are 14% higher, the same as in 2008.

Matthew Iveson, managing director at CV Screen, said, "The growth of online recruitment has made it much easier for candidates to find local employment and as many technology companies are choosing to base themselves out of London. There has definitely been a shift in the market."

The North West was found to pay IT professionals 6% less than the UK average, followed by the North East (-6%) and the Midlands (-4.8%).
