6,522 job vacancies were registered, this is compared to 6,179 recorded in May 2015. Much of this activity can be attributed to opportunities within the private sector as businesses bring on board senior talent on a project basis to facilitate future growth.
Demand has been particularly high for contractors to fill technology and digital roles as businesses invest in ‘future-proof’ systems and tools to aid efficiency, productivity and stakeholder communications.

This demand is mirrored in the rates these professionals are currently commanding. developers with experience in PHP programming are currently earning up to £350 a day, and IT Service Managers making in excess of £600 a day.
