Now running for its fourth year, the Tech Cities Job Watch report provides employers with an indicator of hiring demand and salaries for IT jobs within the UK tech sector.

It 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. This quarter we're taking a closer look at Big Data. With the hurdles introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the growing trend for connected devices, businesses are increasingly under pressure to better manage, secure and leverage their data.

Highlights from the Q1 2018 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
