At TechSPARK, September is officially Talent Month. In partnership with our friends at Huboo Technologies, the award-winning order fulfilment service for eCommerce sellers, we’ll be bringing you features and events on all things tech talent in the South West. 

For Talent Month, ADLIB has put together a series on Skills and Talent Retention Factors, Permanent Salary Guides, and Day Rate Salary Guides. Up next is their current salary benchmarks for competitive wages within a range of tech roles – see the full breakdown here!

On trend

Within the tech sector, salaries are never stagnant, trends are consistently on the up. Year on year, there’s always an increasing demand for talent, with the levels of experience remaining the same.

With more of a push for businesses to become digitally focused in order to keep up with market competition, the number of available candidates doesn’t quite correlate.

At ADLIB, we’re always keeping close to market trends and how things can fluctuate between start-ups, scale-ups, agencies, software houses, larger organisations and corporates.

Here, we aim to provide an overall range of salaries based on a variety of roles. The following rates are based on our work with digital agencies, software houses and SMEs, rather than large enterprises or corporations.

Note: There are always factors to consider when assigning a salary to a role, such as the skill demand, the complexity of the technology, how popular it is in the market, level of responsibility as well as what other benefits are on offer, such as remote working.

It’s also worth noting that the ‘number of years’ of experience is not an ideal measure of technical proficiency. However, as a general guide, it should provide some ballparks and pointers…

So, if you want to be in the know when it comes to the range of salaries you should be offering your devs, engineers and testers, check out ADLIB’s up-to-date permanent salary for the South West guide here!
