A report has revealed that the public sector are far behind private businesses when it comes to investing in the latest technology has to offer their organisations. This is largely due to limits on funds and a failure to find the top candidates for a wide range of IT roles including information security jobs.
Due to larger budgets private sector companies specialising in IT are developing their strategies with future changes in the market in mind. These far reaching implementation plans are driving the need for businesses to start recruiting in specialist IT roles.
There are various expertises emerging within the IT recruitment sector where the demand for talent is extremely keen on both sides. This covers specialist system developers to help companies cut costs in the public sector. With the growth in firms adopting cloud technology service delivery manager roles are on the rise and the threat of cyber crime is likely to increase demand for senior IT security recruitment.
This also applies to the private sector where UX designers as well as web and application systems developers are required. Those candidates with higher levels of accreditation and experience will find private sector jobs more appealing due to the advanced technologies in place.
Public sector jobs are likely to offer only legacy systems forcing some candidates to stall on their career path.
However, with many experts predicting that the IT job market is on an upward rise candidates across the full spectrum of IT jobs have much to gain.
