There were 19% more jobs advertised for IT directors in the last quarter of 2002 than in the same period in 2001, and the average salary on offer was 14.5% higher, according to the latest Computer Weekly/SSP Survey of IT Appointments.
While demand for senior staff held up better than that for junior staff, IT directors were the only management group that saw demand rise, and the only group to see a double-digit growth in advertised salaries.
Advertised salaries for IT/MIS managers, the next most senior group, grew by 5.6%, but demand was down by 42%.
Job prospects for office systems/PC managers plummeted faster than for any other management group, with advertised demand down 67%.
