Salary Trends for PHP Devs in London, UK

Posted on 18 January 2008 by Demian Turner

Andrew sent over this interesting analysis of salary trends for PHP devs in London, was suprised such detailed info was available.  The only prob is the salary data is quite understated in my experience, advanced devs can easily find gigs for £50-70k, but it’s certainly true that agencies and often employers do very poor jobs differentiating between mediocre and ninja candidates.

Another shocker, for me at least, is while £200/day was quite a typical rate last year for HTML guys who knew a bit of CSS (PHP guys could get £300), this year has seen a significant jump with the frontend guys able to command £300/day.

    sure – just upload your CV to all the job sites, I did that around 4 years ago and get 2-3 good offers/wk.
