Skilled IT professionals in demand in Britain

IT professionals with a high level of skill are in demand in the UK.

A new report on behalf of the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) found that in April, a seven per cent year-on-year increase was noted for permanent vacancies for highly-skilled individuals.

The study - carried out by Innovantage - discovered that candidates with professional qualifications are currently having a more successful time in the jobs market than their lower-skilled counterparts.

'Recruiters are reporting that it can take up to six months to fill a vacancy for an in-demand IT skill,' explained APSCo chief executive Ann Swain.

She added that it can prove difficult to 'source certain skills from within the UK'.

Temporary employee demand fell by three per cent for those working in highly-skilled professional sectors, the poll also highlighted.

It was recently asserted by Eurograduate that more students are looking into whether studying for degrees in the UK for a domestic job is worth it, in light of increasing tuition fees and redundancies.
