“How much do you get paid?”
One of the three aims of Digital Xtra Fund is to connect our Partners with the activities we support, giving their employees and young people the opportunity to engage at a grassroots level in fun and informal settings. It’s hardly surprising when you bring these groups together, two of the most common questions asked of industry professionals are – what jobs are available in the digital technologies sector and how much do you get paid? (always interesting to see how this one is handled…)
Everyone is different so while specific examples are helpful, information on a range of professions and the salaries associated with these roles may be more useful to young people and educators alike. Various resources are available online, but the most recent to be published is Be-IT’s fourth annual survey of IT and digital pay. It is especially useful in answering not only these two most common questions, but it also gives young people an indication of the salary progression that is available at different levels of experience. Plus, it is specific to Scotland which is useful for those who may be looking to stay closer to home.
Be-IT are specialists in recruiting professionals for IT, Digital, Project Management and Leadership jobs. This salary survey is conducted independently for Be-IT.
