    • IT Monitor / Computer People Page 2 of 13IT MonitorDemand for permanent staff cools as contractor demand rises Permanent Contract Vacancies % Change Vacancies % Change Number of vacancies: all sectors 15,470 0.17% 6,057 0.07%Last month we saw a (0.17%) decrease in the number permanent vacancies and a slight 0.07% increase in contract vacanciessignalling that the IT market across all sectors remains stable. There were 15,470 permanent vacancies and approximately6,057 unique contract vacancies showing a minor shift from the previous month of 15,497 and 6,053 respectively.We are seeing prior month’s trends continue as contractor roles appear to be increasing whilst permanent roles remain insteady demand. As it becomes increasingly competitive to fill permanent roles, many organisations are looking for interimcontract solutions.This trend is typical of the summer months. As people tend to take extended leave, contractors are called in to provide coveron key projects. In some cases, short term summer projects are initiated over these months as business slows.We expect the number of contract vacancies to remain strong, but we continue to be mindful that consistent decreases in thenumber of permanent vacancies across all sectors may increase pressure on organisations to hold onto existing permanentstaff with the right skill sets.Sector breakdownsRetailThere has been a dramatic increase in the number of permanent and contract retail vacancies last month with an increaseof 6.59% for permanent roles and 17.86% for contract roles month-on-month. The number of vacancies has increased to728 (from 683) and 132 (from 112) respectively. The sector is also experiencing a high demand for candidates with specificIT skills as companies invest in e-commerce technologies to diversify service offering as spending patterns continue to shiftto online in place of high street shopping. Companies like ASOS have set the pace for online shopping which others arenow following.

    • IT Monitor / Computer People Page 3 of 13IT MonitorPublic SectorThe number of contractor vacancies dropped dramatically by 7.81%, recording only 236 new vacancies in June comparedto 256 in May. The number of new permanent vacancies in June was also down (1.09%) compared to May. We saw abig rise in the number of vacancies across the public sector in April as hiring managers bulk resourced as budgets werereleased. This trend hasn’t continued, as greater cuts have since been announced and unrest in the industry continues tobuild.TelecomsDemand for IT staff in telecoms remains high. As anticipated, new projects are generating demand for IT Telecomsspecialists. In May we saw the number of permanent telecoms vacancies increase significantly. Last month permanentvacancies continued to increase significantly (2.01%) whilst the rate of increase in the number of contractor vacanciesslowed marginally (0.5%).Banking, finance and insuranceWe are seeing a levelling off in contractor vacancies (down 0.13%) as many banking, insurance and finance projects haltduring the quieter summer months. The changes in vacancies are mostly attributed to banks initially filling vacancies withcontractors. With project resources having been sourced, banks are now looking to fill permanent roles (shown by a 1.28%increase in vacancies to drive more strategic projects and initiatives forward.Media, new media and creativeAs predicted, for the third month running we’ve seen a drop in the number of media, new media and creative vacancies.Month-on-month vacancies have decreased by 4.86% and 4.52% for permanent and contract vacancies respectively. Thisindustry sector was among the first to recruit post-recession. So it no longer has such immediate requirements, reverting toad-hoc hiring giving rise to more sporadic trends.Monthly salary trends Permanent Permanent Contract Contract % change in (Monthly) (Yearly) (Monthly) (Yearly) permanent/contract rates 0.08% 6.15% 1.15% 5.40%Permanent salaries for IT professionals increased by 0.08% last month. As organisations become increasingly aware ofthe need for greater IT investment for integration projects which create internal efficiencies and impact the bottom line.Contractor pay continues to grow at an even faster pace, increasing 1.15% month-on-month and by 5.40% year-on-year.Greater market confidence this year compared to last seems to be putting upward pressure on contractor pay.Although economic recovery is far from over, steps have been made in the right direction. As this continues we expect tosee salaries increase, generating further pressure on hiring managers’ budgets.www.computerpeople.co.uk

This rise is reflective of the skill set as SAP is seen by theindustry as a premium skill and a highly valued resource. Scarcity of SAP skills and experience is contributing to upwardpressure on contractor pay, with many SAP practitioners working throughout Europe and in Germany in particular. SAPpractitioners are integral to efficiency and integration projects which are crucial to businesses at the moment.We have seen a 3.80% increase in salaries for contract IT directors month-on-month and a 10.10% increase year-on-yearas businesses begin to understand the importance of an integrated IT strategy to drive the organisation. The previous shortterm and tactical approach of increasing headcount at a more junior level to deliver projects has been replaced with aneed for a strategic head of IT to drive strategy and engender a culture of integration, efficiency and effectiveness withinorganisations. As many organisations make IT a key priority in their business, the importance of having the right pilot todirect the department is imperative to the successful implementation of a sound IT strategy.We saw contractor pay across core programming disciplines decrease in June including testing (down 1.10%), database(down 1.20%) and SQL server (down 1.23%). The reality is that, as technology speeds up and is more capable of handlingever increasing amounts of data, older technologies are being superseded by new technologies such as cloud, portabledevice applications and issues such as security and hacking.Jobs in demandLast month we saw a slight shift in jobs in demand as developers, project managers and analysts top the table, across allsectors. A reoccurring theme is that consultants are working their way up the list.www.computerpeople.co.uk
    • IT Monitor / Computer People Page 5 of 13IT MonitorDemand for core developers, business intelligence specialists and project managers that can design, build and delivernew and innovative products to boost numbers of new customers remains very high. However, as we have seen withsalaries, it will be those people with new technology skills and experience that will be in highest demand going forward.
