IT professionals see a rise in demand in Greater London


IT contractors will be interested to learn that there is a large demand for highly skilled IT professionals, particularly within Greater London.

According to the research carried out by the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (ASPCo) and Vacancysoft, IT experts accounted for 28.4% of all vacancies advertised over the last two years.

The recent data revealed that the Marketing and PR sector also saw a rise in demand with the Technology and Media & Telecoms sectors being the roles most sought after within the industry.

Ann Swain, chief executive of APSCo, commented on the recent findings, “Greater London continues to be a remarkably diverse employment market with no more than one single employer accounting for more than 2.6% of vacancies.

She added, “The top 20 companies, such as EY and Sky, continue to account for nearly a quarter of the Greater London figures (23.6%), however, they announced 8.5% fewer openings over the 12 month period. What our statistics also show is that the greatest growth in demand actually came from medium sized companies (101-200 ranked), advertising nearly 10% (9.4%) more vacancies during the year.”
