According to the latest Report on Jobs published by KPMG and the REC, demand for permanent IT & computing workers improved for the fifty-fifth month running in March.
The growth rate was the quickest since August 1998 and the need for permanent staff outstripped that of temporary staff.
Heath Jackson, partner in the CIO Advisory practice at KPMG, said: “It’s encouraging to note that the demand for permanent technology workers improved for the fifty-fifth month running, with more organisations offering contracts for permanent positions than temporary roles over the past month.
“The technology sector figure resonates with the national numbers, indicating employment is on the up. The next step will be for candidates to put themselves forward for the roles on offer to improve prospects – something they still seem unwilling to do.
