From one per cent of total digital vacancies in 2009 to seven per cent last year.

A new salary study by UK based recruitment specialist Propel London outlines the huge growth in the mobile job market.

Its Digital Salary Insights report – based on real salary data from open vacancies with digital employers – shows that the number of mobile-specific vacancies increased by more than 14 times between 2009 and 2011. 

The average number of new vacancies in the wider digital industry doubled in the same period.

It also found that in the last two years mobile has brought with it a stack of job types that barely existed before. They include: mobile product, project management, media sales, ad ops, web development and design vacancies were all new additions to the portfolio of demand in 2010 & 2011.

What’s more, almost every mobile related salary at all levels of seniority has expanded since 2009.

The 2012 edition of Digital Salary Insights contains 30 pages of salary info taken from more than 5,000 vacancies across virtually every sector of the digital industry.
