IT sector leads nationwide rebound in hiring intentions

IT has once again topped recruitment firm Hudson’s list of industry sectors when it comes to hiring intentions.

Hudson’s latest Employment Expectations Report shows that of 19 industry sectors, IT had the highest positive net effect for the October-December period, at 25 percent.

The “net effect” is calculated by taking the percentage of employers surveyed that expect to decrease staffing levels during the survey period, and subtracting the percentage who don’t intend to hire staff.

The result is in line with most previous Employment Expectations surveys Hudson has done in the past few years. The survey, originally done every six months, is now conducted every quarter.

However, while the overall 25 percent positive net effect is an 8.7 percentage point increase on the previous survey, it is concentrated mainly in the lower North Island and South Island, with the upper North Island seeing a slip in sentiment since the previous survey.

For the upper North Island, there was a 13.2 percentage point drop, with a net 3.3 percent result recorded.
