In the latest issue of our Labour Market Bulletin by e-skills UK, the data shows a continuing decline in the number of 'ready candidates' for IT positions, against an increase in the number of jobs on offer.
It revealed that the number of advertised vacancies for IT staff rose has risen for four consecutive quarters to reach 94,000 positions, while the number of IT candidates seeking new or additional jobs fell to 112,000.
According to the report, this resulted in increased competition for recruiters last year, with advertised rates for ICT staff rising slightly as a result.
A recent poll carried out by Milkround.com found that graduates believe there is a greater chance of being hired into permanent employment in the IT and engineering sectors, which may include sales recruitment, than in industries such as the arts and media.
For both hardware and software sales jobs call an Aaron Wallis IT sales recruitment consultant. The Aaron Wallis IT sales recruitment service includes skills testing, personality questionnaires and 12 months rebate as standard.
