AMSTERDAM — Salaries for IT workers rose again in the first half of this year, according to a wage study published on Tuesday.

The report by management consultants De Breed & Partners said that renumeration in the sector rose on average by 7 percent.

The percentage was driven up in particular by young workers with less than 5 years work experience in IT. The average increase falls to 4 percent when starters in the IT are excluded.

In percentile terms young IT workers have experienced a 16 percent increase in recent times, internet publication Webwereld.nl said.

The average renumeration for an IT professional with less than 5 years work experience now comes to EUR 43,000.  Roughly 37,500 is made up of wages, while the rest is made up of variable benefits such as a car, a mobile phone or an internet connection paid for by the employer.

IT professionals with more than 20 years of experience can demand renumeration of EUR 64,000, of which EUR 55,000 is in the form of wages, Webwereld reported.

On the basis of its research, De Breed & Partners expects a significant increase in IT wages of 5 to 10 percent this year. The value of discretionary benefits will also rise but by 4 percent less, the report said.
