IT job numbers rising fast

The number of IT jobs have almost doubled this year, according to Mandis/Computer People’s quarterly job tracker.

A fourfold growth in telecoms opportunities helped stoke the numbers in the second quarter, offsetting a slight tail-off in IT job prospects.

Altogether, 7,246 new jobs were posted during the second quarter of 2006, compared with 4,888 in the first quarter.

Despite a slight downturn on 2005 figures, Computer People managing director Adam Fletcher is optimistic about the buoyancy of the market and believes the slow start to the year “was simply a blip”.

He adds, “We may see demand outstripping supply in some of the more specialist areas by the end of the year such as C# and .net development skills.”
