IT vacancies leading the way in jobs market

Filed under: Information Risk and Security — Mark on May 16, 2012

IT vacancy numbers are helping to create growth in recruitment, says a report by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. The IT industry with information security recruitment and other sectors of IT offer a wealth of vacancies, which is driving the jobs market as a whole.

The report takes its data from recruitment firms and says that staff placements increased last month – a continuing trend that started in the beginning of 2012. However, the report says that the growth rate was a modest one and is the slowest it has been since the beginning of the year. The growth rate for temporary jobs was down slightly.

The staff monitored eight different categories of permanent employees with six registered improvements that were demanded in April. Falling in line with trends, the largest growth was in IT.

With regards to permanent IT staff, sought after were SAP specialists, developers and side business analysts. CRM practitioners and CAD designers were found to be high in demand as temporary staff.

REC chief executive, Kevin Green, said:

“This month’s figures show growth in permanent jobs but at the slowest level since January. This highlights the fragile nature of the UK jobs market at present. Employer and consumer confidence are increasing and we anticipate more private sector jobs being created in the second half of the year.”

Data from the Office for National Statistics showed that online-based recruitment expenditure climbed by 0.8 per cent on the fourth quarter of last year – following a 1.4 per cent rise in the previous quarter.
