Technology workers lured by more competitive pay outside of the capital

A report has found that cities such as Cambridge and Birmingham now rival London for competitive salaries in technology, while contractors outside the capital can command significantly higher rates. While 72% of advertised tech jobs are based in London, opportunities outside the capital are increasingly attractive, especially when the cheaper cost of living is considered. Contractors earning by the day can actually earn more in other cities, according to IT recruitment specialist Experis. The company's first quarterly Tech Cities Job Watch Report found that the average UK salary for a person working in tech is £42,671. London leads the way with a typical salary of £51,584, but Britons looking to work in Cambridge, Birmingham or Glasgow can expect to earn £40,994, £39,733 and £39,143 respectively. Bristol rounds out the top five with a salary of £37,859.
