Salary Guide 2017: IT Permanent

Wednesday, February 01, 2017

Demand for software developers shows no sign of slowing down, with the first half of the 2016 marked by high volumes of recruitment activity.

In particular we saw strong demand for net developers, system administrators and project managers. The second half of the year saw hiring activity slow down slightly, particularly with MNCs. There was a decrease in the number of roles in the IT support function, although demand for software development professionals continued to go from strength to strength. The most in demand skills were in Java, .net, Full Stack developers as well as a strong demand for software testers.

Commentary on IT Roles and Remuneration in Ireland for 2017  

Over the past 12 months we have seen salaries increase in the majority of areas particularly in the development space. Companies have become more aggressive in retaining people and the number of counter offers received by candidates has been at its highest level for a number of years. Retaining top talent, in particular Irish IT professionals, is a key target for employers and they are beginning to offer greater flexibility to retain and attract top talent. Working from home, flexi time and educational assistance are some of the key offerings from employers that are proving successful. 

Candidates themselves are definitely more open to explore new job opportunities but they will only move if the new role ticks all the boxes. Working with new cutting edge technology is one of candidates key focuses as well as the salary. For example we have seen clients offer excellent remuneration packages but the candidate has turned down the offer as the technology hasn’t been attractive enough.
