London IT salaries continue to outstrip those in other parts of South East England, according to a report by an IT recruitment agency.
The CV Screen agency's analysis of 4,000 positions found that salaries had increased by 4.3% in the past 12 months, compared with 3.4% elsewhere in the region.
"There is obviously a premium attributed to working in London and the survey shows that salaries are 15% higher than the rest of the South East," said Alex Lawson, London account manager at CV Screen.
Lawson said the London job market remained strong with the average permanent IT salary in the city at £38,577.
He said even though commentators were predicting a downturn in the coming year, early indications were that the IT job market was holding up well with the initial demand for staff being high.
