Jobs recovery could impact IT contracting: Hudson

Recruitment firm Hudson has released its 2010 ICT Salary Guide

The recovery in the IT jobs market could begin to take its toll on contract positions, according to the latest ICT salary guide by recruitment firm Hudson.

The 2010 ICT Salary Guide predicts that companies will reduce their contract positions in favour of permanent staff this year. In New South Wales alone, contract rates decreased from 10 to 30 percent from this time last year.

The guide also revealed ICT projects put on hold during 2009 will pick up again.

“This will drive an increase in the demand for skilled candidates and place an upward pressure on salaries in 2010,” the guide read.

While Hudson reported a reduction in jobs for C , C++ and Visual Basic programmers, it said there had been strong demand for support based jobs, such as helpdesk.

The firm also noted a steady demand for business analysts, analyst programmers, infrastructure professionals, IT managers and SAP specialists.

“Niche and highly specialist roles such as SharePoint, .NET, J2EE architects, Oracle, Siebel consultants and some legacy technologies used by predominantly the banking and government sectors have pushed salaries in an upward direction due to widespread shortages,” the guide read. “We anticipate this trend to continue through 2010.”

According to the recent Hudson Report: Employment Expectations, the IT and telecommunications sectors had one of the most solid quarterly increases in employer confidence.
