Over the past three months the number of IT&T jobs advertised online has increased by 14.26 per cent, according to the Olivier Internet Job Index.
Robert Olivier, a director of the Olivier Recruitment Group said IT&T job numbers increased by 3.5 per cent in August, signalling an encouraging trend. Of the IT&T jobs advertised online, most have been in the sales and marketing and software development and engineering areas.
Including other sectors, the Olivier Internet Job Index figures show continuing growth in employment, with analysis showing an underlying 5 per cent increase in jobs advertised on the Internet during August.
However, the EL Executive Demand Index – published by executive search firm EL Consult - found executive demand fell in the IT sector 6 per cent in August compared with the previous month, taking it close to its lowest level in 10 years.
