We've just posted up the full details of our 2009 UK Games Development Salary Survey, which has revealed that the average salary for developers in Great Britain is £30,442.
This number is calculated from the data given by developers amongst the 528 respondents filling in our survey, which we ran earlier this year.
The £30,442 number is also fractionally lower than the industry average of £31,655. But still, £30,442 is a good £5k higher than the annual average salary in the UK, which is £24,908 according to the Office of National Statistics.
Some other highlights from the survey results:
- 65.8 per cent of those surveyed said they were satisfied that their salary covers the cost of living.
- 67 per cent of games studio staff in the UK say their employer provides no training.
- Of those looking to move job in future, 26.6 per cent said it was because of financial remuneration.
- 67.3 per cent of our respondents said t hat they were confident about 2009 in regards to their current work situation.
