Reassuringly then, thepreviously recorded drop in contractor levels in December (down 0.25%) didn’t persist. The short working month of Januarykicked off relatively swiftly after the Christmas break, and many of our offices received requirements on the first day back.Sector breakdown Permanent Contract (per hour) Number of vacancies: major sector Vacancies % Change Vacancies % Change Banking, insurance and finance 1,525 1.40% 782 -1.39% Retail 652 2.84% 81 37.29% Telecoms 479 5.04% 94 27.03% Media, new media and creative 398 -8.51% 153 -1.29% Public Sector 129 -14.57% 216 0.06%Banking, insurance and financeBanking, insurance and finance saw overall growth in vacancies by 0.01%, as permanent vacancies rose by 1.40% andcontract declined by 1.39%. The industry has enjoyed steady requirements over the past six months, which is a positive signgiven that this sector is usually the first to react to fears around recession.RetailThe retail industry started the year on a high with significant vacancy increases in both permanent and contract roles.Permanent vacancies increased by 2.84%, which is a positive sign considering that consumer spending in January failedto be stimulated, despite retailers across the UK slashing the price of new season stock in an attempt to give the market amuch needed boost. On the contractor side we saw an influx in the number of vacancies advertised in January, largely tocontrast the steep fall in previous months, but more so to begin preparations for London 2012 Olympic Games.www.computerpeople.co.uk
  • 3. IT Monitor / Computer People Page 3 of 12IT MonitorTelecomsAs mentioned in previous months, new contracts being awarded early in the latter part of 2011 and in the new year – alongwith budgets being thawed – has led to a recruitment surge on both the permanent and contract side within the telecomssector. This month, permanent vacancies rose by 5.04%, and the number of contractors increased by 27.03%.Media, new media and creativeThe creative industry showed a decline in January, which was not unexpected or problematic. We saw substantial increasesin vacancies for both permanent and contract staff towards the latter part of 2011, meaning that in the new year, thesector’s requirements are understandably light and are likely to remain so until March and April, when the industry tends toincrease staffing in an effort to utilise excess financial budgets.Public sectorWith continued budget cuts impacting the sector heavily in 2011 and showing no signs of easing in 2012, the public sectorremains opposed to new permanent hires; leading to a decline of 14.57% in permanent vacancies this month. In recentmonths, hiring managers were more inclined to recruit contract staff, as contract hires come under project budgets andare more justifiable in the present climate. In January however, it seems that contractor vacancies have steadied with amarginal increase this month of 0.06% being recorded. As we continue to monitor the sector, we are hopeful that we maysee a boost in contract employment, although on the whole, we don’t anticipate much sector growth in 2012.Monthly salary trendsWhile we saw sharp salary increases at the beginning of 2011, 2012 started off a little slower due to cautious spending.But as salaries have increased consistently over the past 12 months, it appears that hiring managers are willing to pay forquality where IT is concerned. Permanent Contract Vacancies % Change Vacancies % Change Number of vacancies: all sectors 0.08% 0.72% 4.18% 4.12%Permanent salaries took a hit this month with declines recorded against all key IT jobs, beside web developers (up 0.09%)and project managers (up 0.01%).Contractor pay was inconsistent this month with large rises recorded for .Net/ C# (up 1.02%), Oracle (up 1.60%), SAP (2.43%)and interim IT directors (3.80%). These four specialisms are key growth business areas at present, as they are key todelivering organisational efficiency and effectiveness projects.Sharp decreases were recorded for testing (down 1.10%), database (1.20%), SQL (1.23%) and web development (0.45%).Testing will increase in line with development, so it’s likely that we’ll see a boost next month, while database and SQL aresuffering from the transitional move of technology towards the cloud. Web development positions are largely permanent atpresent as, while budget cuts are imminent, people want to keep web activity in-house.www.computerpeople.co.uk
