Almost two thirds of techies believe six months or more is too long to be out of the IT job market
-The IT Job Board highlights latest research findings, and offers its tips on how to manage life after redundancy-
Redundancy is a hot topic, and according to the latest piece of research from The IT Job Board, www.theitjobboard.co.uk, IT professionals believe that more senior positions are under threat within the sector.
More than one third (39 percent) of respondents cited that IT managers were most likely to be made redundant, and a further 39 percent stated the same would be the case for project managers.
Commenting on these findings, Teresa Sperti, head of international marketing at The IT Job Board, said: This could be due to IT departments putting large projects on hold during the recession. But, on a more positive note, these roles are more likely to be hired first when the market picks up.
Almost half (49 percent of respondents), stated that they had been out of work for between three to nine months, as a result of redundancy. And, 63 percent said that they believed six months or more is too long to be out of the job market.
