Now running for its third year, the Tech Cities Job Watch report provides employers with a barometer of the changing workforce dynamics within the technology sector.

It also puts a spotlight on the emerging opportunities and challenges businesses face in 10 UK Cities that have or are rapidly developing reputations as technology cluster hubs - London, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle upon Tyne.

The report focuses on five key disciplines: Big Data, Cloud, IT Security, Mobile and Web Development, with each quarter focusing on a specific theme.

Highlights of the Q4 2016 report reveal that:

  • Demand for permanent IT Security roles has increased by more than 50% since Q4 2015, as Cyber crime moves to the top of the C-Suite agenda
  • Annual IT Security permanent salaries climbed by 4.99% across 10 cities, compared to 0.62% for contractor day rates
  • IT Security professionals in London are still commanding the largest salaries by far (£62,596) – almost a fifth (19%) higher than any other region
