A culmination of forces will spark a fierce bidding war for specialist technology talent next year, says Robert Walters New Zealand director Shay Peters.

IT contract and salary rates are forecast to jump around 10 percent for digital roles that are in particularly short supply, shown in the findings of Robert Walter’s annual Salary Survey.

Digital design salaries, for example, were between $80,000 to $120,000 this year, and are expected to jump to between $90,000 and $130,000 in 2019. Digital insights and analytics managers will command a top salary of $160,000 next year, up $10,000 from 2018.

Peters says every industry is now reliant on technology, and the need for talent is more pressing than ever before.

“Employers will need to pull out all the stops and get on top of their recruitment packages to attract tech talent next year," he said.
