17th October 2011

Specialist IT Recruitment Agency CV Screen report a year on year increase of 27% in the number of IT Jobs registered.

CV Screen looked into the number of registered vacancies during Q3 of 2010 and compared these to the total number of registered vacancies during the corresponding quarter in 2011.

During the same period, CV Screen also analysed the number of applications made by job seekers and found that the average number of CVs received for each role had dropped by 8% with an average of 192 CVs received per vacancy.

Commenting on the findings CV Screen’s Matthew Iveson remarked “there is no doubt that demand for IT staff has risen substantially over the last 12 months and a 27% increase is certainly good news for IT professionals who are seeking employment.”

Iveson continued “We have seen that there is continuing high demand for candidates with strong development skills with both PHP and .NET skills still areas where there is a shortage in supply of experienced developers who are seeking a new role.”

When asked about the outlook for the IT jobs market, Iveson commented “We are confident that the market will continue to improve as companies look to invest in their IT departments. It is clear however that there is still some uncertainty in the marketplace which is reflected in a slightly lower number of candidates who are applying for roles.”
