Web development combines creativity and analytical skills perfectly. It's for the detail orientated and those with an eye for design. 

But, if no other reason inspires, the salary certainly will. With demand going strong, the average UK web developer earns £39,000, according to IT Jobs Watch. This represents a 3.90 percent increase since this time last year and an increase of 2.67 percent from the year before that.
