Salaries for IT professionals based in London continue to outstrip those in the South East region according to figures from IT recruitment agency CV Screen.

The analysis of over 4,000 IT positions found that salaries had increased by 4.3 per cent over the last 12 months. This compared to the 3.4 per cent increase in the South East region reported by CV Screen last week (7-11 January 2008). CV Screen found that the average permanent IT salary in London now stands at £38,577.

"There is obviously a premium attributed to working in London," comments CV Screen's account manager for London, Alex Lawson, "and the survey shows that salaries are 15 per cent higher than those in the rest of the South East region."

Lawson adds: "The London IT jobs market remains strong and we are currently experiencing very high demand for staff at the beginning of 2008. The IT jobs market is holding up well." www.cvscreen.co.uk.
