According to research from the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) there were 90,416 IT jobs advertised in May this year, compared with 70,912 the same month in 2010. This shows a significant 28% year on year increase and indicated that he number of opportunities available to IT contractors in the UK is most definitely on the rise.
Commenting on the findings, Chief Executive of APSCo Ann Swain said it’s not surprising that businesses are once again investing in technology, after being made to rein in spending during the recession. She added, “IT is seen as key to boosting competitive advantage, so IT directors are increasingly keen to push the button on projects, which will deliver significant productivity gains. Candidates with cloud computing experience, for example, are in high demand.”
