Latest news and events in our sector
The strengthening economy will see the number of IT positions increase this year, an industry figure has said.
Maggie Berry, managing director of womenintechnology.co.uk, said that now would be a good time for those struggling to find employment to invest in their IT skills, as employers in various sectors need candidates with competencies in this area.
This is particularly true of female workers, with firms keen to boost the number of women working in their IT departments.
However, this is made difficult by a lack of candidates with required levels of IT knowledge.
"With the economy recovering in 2011 and more optimism amongst employers, I think we are definitely going to see an increase in IT jobs," Ms Berry stated.
She added that there are more women leaving the sector than entering it and those who invest in obtaining key skills will have a good chance of securing employment.
