Precise knowledge needed for global HR implementations

“We?re seeing an uplift in demand for a number of roles from functional analysts through to technical consultants to help with large scale implementations within HR functions of global organisations. Hiring managers are being increasingly specific, not only requiring cultural fit but also knowledge of local employment and payroll legislation.”

BI in demand to help senior management with investment decisions

“Having had a tough 18 months, many companies are implementing reporting tools to highlight profitability of different parts of their business so that senior management can make an informed decision on future investment. We?re seeing increasing levels of demand for those with experience of BI/MI technologies such as SAP and Oracle from junior level analysts right up to department heads and BI directors as a result.”

Desktop support candidates back in demand in financial services

“Having shrunk their desktop functions as headcount reduced during the recession, financial services organisations are now increasing their headcount as activity picks up in the sector. As a result we?re seeing strong levels of demand for desktop support candidates.”

Technology migration to latest Microsoft products drives consultancy demand

“We?re seeing an increase in demand for technology migration specialists within IT consultancies. This is because there is increased demand, especially in larger organisations with 2000 users, for new functionality on the latest Microsoft releases (Windows 7 and Office 2010).”
