Explore the biggest salary trends and insights from 2021 and for the year ahead in the UK in Xcede’s 2022 Salary Survey.

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the pace of digitisation across all sectors as businesses moved operations online and adopted remote or hybrid working practices. Skill requirements changed and the competition to secure specialist technology talent intensified. Against the backdrop of a challenging hiring landscape, organisations in 2021 were under even more pressure to entice talent at all levels. It saw significant investments made to elevate employer brands, with salaries and benefits no longer just competitive but outstanding.
