Elan expands in Edinburgh

Elan Computing's Edinburgh branch has relocated to larger offices, citing a "dynamic" business strategy and the growth of IT opportunities in e-commerce and the internet as reasons for its Scottish expansion.

According to the IT recruitment consultancy, its contractor numbers have doubled and permanent placements increased since the Edinburgh branch adopted its new business strategy at the beginning of the year.

"The upturn in business has been dramatic over the last quarter," says Kate McClorey, regional manager for Scotland. "We have found that both the permanent and contract markets are experiencing a degree of overheating at present."

Among the technologies currently sought by Scottish clients are Java, Coldfusion, ASP, HTML, DHTML, Javascript, VB Script and Oracle/Unix skills, says McClorey.

"Surprisingly, the mainframe market has not diminished - at least 50 per cent of our requirements are still for Cobol, CICS, DB2 or IMS skills," she adds. "Testers on all platforms are in great demand."
