IT pros in demand

Advertised IT vacancies jumped 8% year on year in the second quarter of 2014, according to recruitment consultant Robert Walters.
Data from the Robert Walters UK Job Index found demand for IT professionals has continued to increase, after the first quarter of 2014 reported only a 2% jump in advertised roles.
The Robert Walter’s UK Job Index maps the number of vacancy numbers posted to online platforms.
For the second quarter, data revealed the fastest rise in advertised IT vacancies was recorded in the Midlands – a region where the IT vacancies have increased by a fifth since the second quarter of 2013.
However, the Midlands was not the only region to experience growth, with IT job advertisements increasing by 9% in the North West between the first and second quarter of this year.
