Tech Cities Job Watch Q1 2018
The Tech Cities Job Watch report provides employers with a barometer of the changing workforce dynamics within the technology sector across ten UK Tech Cities. The report focuses on five key disciplines, including: Big Data, Cloud, IT Security, Mobile and Web Development.
In this quarter’s report we take a closer look at the Big Data discipline. With the hurdles introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation and the growing trend for connected devices, businesses are increasingly under pressure to better manage, secure and leverage their data.
Key highlights from the report reveal that:
- Demand for Big Data professionals intensifies with a 78% surge since Q1 2017
- Big Data specialists command the highest salary of £67,464 (compared to all disciplines), yet the average salary increased by just 0.1% in the past year
- Contractor day rates are down by 5% over the same period, offering £504, but Big Data also remains the discipline with the highest paid average day rate
