The UK recruitment consultancy ITS (Information Technology Services) has just published its latest survey (the figures are for June 2008) on law firm IT department salaries (see attached PDF). Looking at these figures and comparing them with earlier surveys, it looks as if salaries have stalled – although once again the figures do reveal that if a candidate is prepared to shop around, there are wide variations in the salaries being paid for the same job levels. There again, as nobody seems to be moving and the Insider's website jobsboard is the quietest its ever been, with almost no new vacancies being posted, perhaps its all a bit academic and we need to hunker down and live with a recession.
