New research from CV Screen reported that the number of IT job vacancies advertised has increased by 27 per cent in the third quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2010.
However, during the same period, the number of people applying for IT jobs fell by eight per cent, with an average of 192 CVs per vacancy.
CV Screen's Matthew Iveson said: "There is no doubt that demand for IT staff has risen substantially over the last 12 months and a 27 per cent increase is certainly good news for IT professionals who are seeking employment."
Mr Iveson said that the slightly lower number of candidates represents the uncertainty that the market is facing.
A research paper by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) recently suggested that more needs to be done to encourage people into the IT sector.
