According to Salary Services, the contract market is most definitely returning to health after two years of decline, with the number of advertised positions is up by 22.1% over the course of 2010.

This was after placement availability halved between the start of 2008 and the end of 2009. The company says that contractors and other freelancers are also commanding higher pay, with rates up by 3.2% on the start of the year. Amongst contractors, SQL skills remain in highest demand, followed by C, Java, C#, Oracle and .Net, Salary Services reported.

Earlier this month, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation reported that the number of temporary jobs continued to increase in the UK during June 2010.
