It is obvious the contract market has taken off in the recession.

  6. 6. Demand for IT Professionals in The Netherlands Demand by Skill Developers, testers, business analysts and project managers now equate to 43% of jobs onsite. Tester roles are demonstrating steady demand as projects commissioned in 2008 need testing skills to move towards completion in 2009.

  10. 10. Future Challenges for the IT Recruitment Market One of the key challenges for the future of the industry and IT recruitment is the lack of new talent entering the industry. Attracting Young People Over the past 7 years, the number of students enrolling in ICT studies in The Netherlands has declined. In 2008 however, the number of new 1st year university students has grown by 9.4% and numbers enrolling in HBO courses increased by 6.2%. Despite the short-term uplift, this will remain a key issue for the ICT sector for years to come. As a result at the end of 2009, the ICT office will commence an action program which will improve the perception of the industry to increase the number of enrolments in ICT courses.
