SQL and SQL server jobs will be two of the most in-demand skills for 2012, research from the IT Job Board has revealed.
London continues to dominate as the city advertising the most IT jobs, standing at 300,626.
The highest-paid permanent salary is for a senior applications designer at up to £200,000, and for a contract role this stands at daily rates of up to £1,126 across a range of skill sets.
Alexandra Farrell, managing director at the IT Job Board, said: “Clearly SQL is a core skill as we move into 2012, and we would anticipate seeing increasing numbers of IT professionals either retraining in this area, or looking to improve on existing skills. It certainly seems to be one to watch.
“And unsurprisingly, London continues to dominate as the place to find IT work. I was particularly interested in the rise seen for contractors on the finance side, again one to look out for in 2012,” she added.
