Public sector tech jobs still plummeting

Another bad quarter

Application security programs and practises

Public sector job adverts fell by 36 per cent in the last quarter, but overall demand for IT staff is still high.

The most recent drop in public sector postings follows a fall of 21 per cent in the previous quarter. Contracting work in the public sector is also down - 29 per cent down compared to last quarter.

Skills in demand for both contractors and permies remain pretty stable - SQL is in the top spot followed by C and C#.

Richard Nott, Website Director of CWJobs said: "This continues to be a challenging time for IT jobseekers, particularly in the public sector.

"However overall, CWJobs has seen an eight per cent increase in demand for IT professionals on the website over the last quarter, which is promising."

The numbers come from job ads site CWJobs and JobsAdWatch.co.uk ®
