Salary Benchmarking for IT jobs

Salary Benchmarking for IT jobs

The average UK salary in the UK can be determined by a number of different factors including location, experience, education level and organisation.

This is often referred to as salary benchmarking, which is the process of comparing pay rates for similar positions that are affected by these factors. For example, an IT consultant may earn more working in London than working in Manchester as location can play a big part.
