IT job vacancies on the rise
New research has revealed great news for IT contractors, showing that IT job vacancies are likely to rise back up to pre-recession levels.
According to the recent study, carried out by online jobs board, CWJobs.co.uk, the last five years have shown that the volume of IT contractor roles has increased quite steadily.
IT jobs are now just 15% below what they were pre-recession in Q1 of 2008. Just three years previously, figures were at 41%, which goes to show how much the sector has grown since 2010.
IT contractors might be interested to hear that the most in demand IT skill is SQL, which has remained so for the last five years. Another sought out skill includes C#, as C is no longer deemed necessary by employers what with it being a much older programming language.
CWJobs’ website director, Richard Nott, said, “As Britain’s economic position stabilises, growth is being seen across most sectors of the IT industry, signalling that it is finally recovering from the recession.
“The technology industry looks to be at the forefront of Britain’s growth, and if it maintains the same trajectory, could be boosting Britain’s economic position even further.”
