UK big data jobs scarcer than other IT roles but command highest salaries


"Vacancies for people with big data skills in the UK were fewer than in other IT job areas, but salaries are typically higher, according to the Tech Cities Job Watch Report by recruitment firm Experis.

The report looks at the hiring demand and salaries within 10 UK cities that are developing reputations as technology cluster hubs: London, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne and Sheffield. It focuses on five key technology disciplines in which there are a shortage of skilled IT professionals across the country: IT security, cloud, mobile, big data and web development.

The fewest advertised roles between October and December 2014 were in the big data and IT security disciplines. But big data professionals are being offered the highest average salaries of the five technology disciplines assessed. In the capital, the average salary for big data professionals was £62,499, this was followed by an average salary of about £45,000 in Glasgow and Bristol. The overall average across the 10 UK cities was £58,941. The top three big data skills in demand for this quarter were for Hadoop, Semantic Web and Hive.”
