Technology Sector Salary Benchmark 2021
Posted on 12th March 2021
This is the seventh year we’ve run our technology sector salary survey – and what a year it’s been. In some ways, our industry has been much more resilient than others. It’s not because technology underpins so much of how we work and live today, but also because technology professionals were – broadly – much better equipped to pivot to all the challenges that the pandemic brought with it.
All of which means this data is as relevant and valuable as ever. After a hard drop, recruitment in the technology sector picked up fast – particularly for the contractor market, where we’ve never been busier. So, whatever else is happening in the world, making sure that you’re getting the compensation you deserve, or that you’re paying your team what they’re worth.
As ever, we’ve created this benchmark by surveying hundreds of IT professionals, analysing our database of 24,000 specialists and cross-referencing a range of other major survey results.
Here you’ll find the full salary range – where relevant, from entry level up to senior level – for a comprehensive collection of roles, together with an average day rate for contractors. Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that there are a lot of factors that determine salary – location, company policy, technological change and personal performance all have a role to play.
