Hello all,

I am planning to go to UK in a couple of months.
1)Which are the best places for It professionals aspiring to get 40k+ per annum ?(Java and SAP)
2)I am looking for a city which is not too costly to reside.

Thanks in advance

You may find that these two points are contradictory! A lot of the UK IT sector is located in the more expensive parts of the country - mainly cities in the south east.

Obviously London is the place where you'll find a huge number of IT jobs, but it may be worth looking at some other places in the SE, such as Reading. These will be expensive to live in, but then again that is balanced out by the higher wage expected.

If you're willing to commute for a bit then you'll probably find some reasonably affordable accommodation. I live in a relatively cheap part of London (relative to other parts of London, not the rest of the country) and commute into central London in less then an hour.
