APSCo: ‘With the pandemic forcing most businesses into a remote or hybrid way of working it’s no surprise that IT professionals are in increasingly high demand’.

The research, compiled by the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) with data provided by Vacancysoft, revealed that London has the most advertised roles, with 56,800 vacancies published so far in 2021.

With regards to individual sectors, media holds the top spot for the fastest growth in IT recruitment – hiring levels are up by 112.2% year-on-year.

Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo, commented, “With the pandemic forcing most businesses into a remote or hybrid way of working it’s no surprise that IT professionals are in increasingly high demand.

“However, these experts were already in short supply before the pandemic and this sharp increase is putting increased pressure on recruiters and hiring teams. What we do expect to see is a continued increase in reliance on the contingent IT workforce to fill resourcing needs throughout 2022.”
