Job ads up despite coalition cutbacks

Fastest growth for three years

Build a business case: developing custom apps

The latest quarterly survey of temporary and permanent job postings reveals an eight per cent increase in jobs, despite public sector cutbacks.

The number of jobs advertised in the public sector has fallen 21 per cent since the last survey in March. But contracting jobs for local and central government IT departments is still a strong sector and places more adverts than any others except for finance.

Permanent posts in finance and media have gone up eight per cent and 12 per cent respectively.

In terms of skills requested by employers, Linux beat Unix for the first time this quarter, putting it in tenth place for permanent positions.

The top skill requested for permies was SQL, followed by C, C#, .NET, SQL Server, ASP, Java, Javascript, HTML and Linux.

For contractors the list is broadly similar, although Oracle gets a mention at the number five spot and Java is number three.

The survey comes from CWJobs. ®
