There’s more than 2,500 tech jobs up for grabs in NZ today

Microsoft, AWS and Oracle expertise most in-demand

More than 2,500 technology-related roles are currently being advertised in New Zealand, highlighting the country’s ongoing skills shortage.

Through Seek - recognised as the leading Kiwi employment website - a total of 2,503 vacancies are currently available, spanning all areas of technology.

Key roles include architects, business analysts, computer operators, consultants, database experts and developers, in addition to engineers, IT support, product managers, network administrators, sales and web development.

Given the popularity of LinkedIn and Trade Me Jobs - alongside recruitment agencies - the number of vacant roles is conservative but serves as a timely reminder of the widening gap between customer demand and availability of talent for channel partners.

From a technology perspective, cloud features in 447 job searches, with Microsoft expertise the most in-demand across the country, with relevance in 348 roles.

Unsurprisingly, capabilities within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment is also in high demand, featuring in 258 positions.

Next up are software specialists Oracle (111) and SAP (83), followed by VMware (71) and Google (61).

Meanwhile, digital capabilities are required in 429 roles currently advertised, with security expertise sought in 314 positions.

Transformation experience levels the score at 314 apiece, followed closely by managed services (298) and data centre (236) knowledge.

Currently, there are 43 distribution focused roles available across the country.

Specific to salary, 275 roles are advertised above the $200,000 mark for annual packages, with Auckland accounting for the bulk of the searches (1,428).

As reported by Reseller News, project management, software development and digital are the most in-demand skills in the Auckland technology market, as the city continues to fight for talent.

Backed up by specialist capabilities across networking, infrastructure and business analysis, the City of Sails has been ranked as the “fastest-moving” and "most dynamic" in the country.

Meanwhile in Wellington, 663 roles are currently available, alongside 190 in Christchurch, 67 in Hamilton and 27 in Dunedin.
