Dice has released the results of its latest salary survey, which show that IT professionals in the banking and financial sectors earn the highest average salaries.

The 2015 Dice Salary Survey was administered online by Dice.com, with 16,301 employed technology professionals responding over October and November 2015.

The research found that the IT industry performed solidly, with 62% of technology professionals earning higher salaries in 2015 compared to 2014.

“Almost half of respondents reported a salary increase as a result of upward mobility at the same company, with 38% receiving a merit increase and 10% receiving an internal promotion,” said Dice.

23% received a rise in salary as a result of changing employers.

It should be noted that the research is US-based, and that the same skills may not be as desirable in South Africa.
