The IT recruitment market remained extremely buoyant for the first half of 2016. As per previous years, demand for IT professionals was witnessed across the board and not specific to any one industry. Key areas of growth remained within the financial services / FinTech sectors and technology solution providers.
Mark Fallon, Associate Director of Accounting, Finance and IT in Robert Walters Ireland said: “The mid to senior end of the market was particularly candidate short, with continued high demand for project / programme managers and business analysts. This supports market information that substantial investments in IT have been made with future growth projected.”
On the development side .net framework and Java J2SE / J2EE demand continued to increase. We also saw a high demand for business transformation consultants, change managers and BPR consultants. There was continued growth in the professional services sector with all ‘Big 4’ tech consulting practices adding headcount. Both industry and banking continued to focus on risk, regulatory changes and compliance demands, a trend we expect to continue for the rest of 2016.
