Contract roles increase further in IT sector
The latest ‘Skills in Demand’ report from The IT Job Board shows that the sector continues to climb out of recession, with contract roles continuing to increase. The number of contract vacancies advertised is increasing – representing 30% of all IT job vacancies. IT management and IT support roles make up the majority of jobs currently on offer, with software developers and project managers also in growing demand.
Commenting on the latest statistics, Alex Farrell, MD of The IT Job Board said, “Our Skills in Demand figures provide a strong indication of the state of the market. It is positive to see that the IT recruitment sector has remained steady since the beginning of the year, particularly during the current economic climate. We now hope to begin advertising an even greater number of roles over the coming months, towards the end of 2010.”
The positive nature of this latest report follows on from a series of similar upbeat stories in recent weeks. Last week, CV Screen reported a 47% increase in IT job vacancies compared to 2009. The latest report by Salary Services also suggests that the contract market is rebounding strongly. The surge in contract offers in the banking sector has been the most impressive of all, with Powerchex reporting a 300% increase in contract offers from May to June 2010.
