Demand for IT contractors in the second quarter of the year increased by +3% with a strong need for temporary workers detectable, reports IT specialist recruitment website CWJobs.co.uk, part of the Stepstone Group.
Permanent IT contractors did not benefit from the increase as the need for permanent recruits actually dropped by -1%, the first time in three years. With 90% of contract jobs located in the South of England and therefore close to Olympic venues, the Games are likely to have boosted the demand for temporary IT contractors to meet short-term demand.
Richard Nott, website director at CWJobs said “The role IT specialists will play in delivering the games this summer should not go unnoticed. A significant number will have been recruited just to work on the opening ceremony, for example, and that’s before you take into consideration those extra hands needed for traffic management systems and broadcasting images and videos of the athletes in action.”
