A survey carried out by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) for its Technology Demand and Supply report shows that permanent vacancies were up by eight per cent in the last quarter compared with the previous three-month period.
Meanwhile, the number of available applicants decreased, with the ratio between demand and supply of labour now standing at 1.2 potential applicants per job.
The report shows that advertised demand for IT staff has now risen over four consecutive quarters and stands at the highest level since the fourth quarter of 2008.
Commenting on the figures, Jeff Brooks, chair of REC Technology, said the report confirms the view that the technical sales recruitment sector remains healthy and demand continues to grow.
"IT recruitment companies should see this report as a very positive state of affairs and we remain confident of the future direction of our sector and the IT industry," he noted.
