London is the epicenter of tech jobs in UK, with three-quarters of all roles advertised in Q1 in the capital.
The number of permanent jobs advertised across UK for IT roles have increased by 18% in the first three months of 2015 when compared to the previous quarter.
The total number of IT jobs increased 9% rise across the country, according to Experis’ Tech Cities Job Watch survey.
The survey includes an analysis of over 59,000 UK IT jobs advertised between January and March 2015.
It also recorded a 16% drop in contractor roles advertised across 10 Tech Cities in the country, which includes London, Birmingham, Bristol, Brighton, Glasgow, and Manchester.
Ads for IT Security in London increased by 6,396 roles, which is 32% increase when compared to Q4 2014.
Demand for Cloud specialist roles also surged with 8,257 roles being advertised in the first three months of this year.
Cloud computing related roles also saw an increase of 13% faster in Tech Cities outside London with strong demand in Cambridge, Bristol and Manchester.
Apart from increase in demand for Cloud computing roles, Cambridge emerged as an attractive destination offering highest salaries, with an average of £50,034.
However, salaries for permanent IT jobs in the country saw a marginal increase of 3% to £48,820 across tech disciplines, which include Web Development, Mobile, Cloud, IT Security and Big Data.
Experis Europe managing director Geoff Smith said: "Across the UK’s Tech Cities, a greater take-up of Cloud and E-commerce services has also increased security requirements.
"High profile cybercrime events over the past year have illustrated the severe brand and material damage that can hit underprepared companies. This has put security hiring high on the radar."
