Average salaries in the information technology industry have risen for the first time since 2011, recruitment firm Absolute IT says.

More than 30,000 New Zealand IT workers anonymously feed their pay into an online database managed by the company.

It said the median base salary paid to IT workers had risen to $80,000 a year, an increase of 6.7 per cent from when it last reported in June.

Median average bonuses were unchanged at $6000.

Absolute IT said the figures tallied with the strength it had seen in the market for IT jobs.

"While the national median ICT remuneration rates have improved and our reports show a significant amount of employees are happy in the next 12 months, 67 per cent are still considering a move to a new workplace in the next 12 months," Absolute IT director Grant Burley said.
