IT staff expected to be in demand this year include those with ERP, business analysis, project management, quality assurance and general internet development experience.
That’s according to recruiter Robert Walters, which has released the findings of its latest job market survey. It shows IT skills were in demand during the second half of last year.
“We saw an unusually high number of quality candidates receiving more than one job offer,” says the company’s Auckland office director, Richard Manthel, in a press release.
Most in demand were senior level project managers and “hands-on technical” staff.
The market is such that employers can’t afford to delay hiring decisions, according to Manthel.
“The longer a hiring manager takes to make a definite offer, the more they risk losing the candidate to other potential offers."
