Advertised salaries in the technology sector grew by 1.6 per cent in the last year, but some roles have increased by much as nine per cent since the start of 2017, according to Reed Technology.
The analysis of more than seven million jobs posted since the start of 2015 also found that the number of jobs advertised in the technology sector grew by 12 per cent last year.
Candidates who have in-demand skill sets frequently saw the biggest increases. Advertised roles for Java developers experienced a nine per cent hike in salary since last year.
This was followed by a seven per cent increase for BI developers, business analysts and desktop support staff. Meanwhile, network engineers received a six per cent jump in their pay.
"In 2016 there was £6.8bn venture capital and private equity investment in UK tech - 50 per cent higher than any other European country; and, as investment continues to grow, and the UK makes a name for itself as a tech heartland, companies want to recruit the best talent to do the highest-quality work," said Andy Gardner, senior divisional director of Reed Technology.
"As a result, hiring managers are asking their boards to commit more money towards recruitment of new staff, and that is reflected in the advertised salaries.
"This data shows that during 2018, those companies which are struggling to attract the right talent will need to be ready to increase the salaries they offer."
