The number of jobs advertised in the technology sector grew by 12 per cent last year, according to statistics published by Reed Technology. Advertised salaries in the sector have grown by up to nine per cent since the start of last year.

The data was published by the company, which specialises in tech recruitment, following its analysis of over several million jobs posted since the beginning of 2015.

Speaking of the findings, Andy Gardner, senior divisional director of Reed Technology said: “In 2016 there was £6.8 billion venture capital and private equity investment in UK tech, which is 50 per cent higher than any other European country. As the UK makes a name for itself as a tech heartland, companies will want to recruit the best talent to do the highest quality work.

"Technology is in the privileged position of spearheading the ‘fourth industrial revolution,’ and those within it are perfectly positioned to secure long and satisfying careers for themselves. The AI and robotics revolution will be front and centre in the coming years."

According to the statistics, technology workers in West Midlands have had the biggest overall salary rise of 3.4 per cent. Regarding specific job roles meanwhile, Java developers enjoyed the most pronounced salary hike with nine per cent.
