IT contractor skills in short supply
Posted 29th November 2017 in For Businesses For Workers
Recruiters are reporting a significant shortage in IT contractors in London.
A report from the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) showed there are six IT skills that are in short supply in the capital.
The six skills highlighted by the report are – Application Support, Digital, Gaming, Pen Testers, GDPR and IT Security.
“We simply do not have enough people for all the roles that are out there at the moment,” explained REC chief executive Kevin Green.
“And the number of vacancies is still getting higher…[so] employers are willing to pay higher starting wages to attract the right candidates.”
He added some of the shortage of contractors has increased because of the reduction in EU nationals coming to work in the UK and the ongoing uncertainty over Brexit, as well as the weak pound.
