IT job market remains robust according to experts

Filed under: IT Security — Stephanie on April 30, 2012

Thorough research carried out by an IT recruitment specialist has shown that IT salaries for those in permanent positions have increased by 2 percent within 12 months in the UK. IT professionals can expect an average salary of £39,754.

The survey looked at the UK IT recruitment market in detail, covering a wide spectrum of 50 IT positions including IT security jobs. Over 8,000 job roles advertised nationally in the first three months of 2012 were analysed and compared to the level of advertised IT jobs last year for the same period.

Throughout the challenges experienced in the UK job market, the IT sector suffered less than others. As a result the findings are not surprising, as demand for IT roles such as cyber security jobs has continued to rise.

The report found that that overall the increase in demand for IT professionals was evening out but remaining optimistic moving forward. The statistics also highlighted that the amount of applicants applying to job roles has risen by 20 percent with an average of 194 applications received per IT vacancy. As confidence in the economy and job market has increased so has the number of candidates, with more choosing to change jobs.

Skill shortages are still apparent with PHP, Java, .NET and eCommerce expertise highly sought after. Looking forward, the IT job market looks to remain strong with employers focusing heavily on developing their IT infrastructure. For those seeking information security jobs this is great news, as the need for strong security processes remains high.
