Over half of people looking for work in the IT sector are finding a new employer within three months, a new study shows.
In news that could interest people looking for graduate jobs in the sector, research by First Point found that of the 350 candidates surveyed, 50 per cent found a job within three months.
Tom Fahey, managing director of the firm, said the figures show clearly "just how in demand good IT people are".
IT remains a "key business need" that is required across all industries, he added.
Mr Fahey stated: "The fact that both permanent and temporary workers continue to find work in a short period of time demonstrates the value placed upon skilled personnel."
A recent study by the British Computer Society found that 70 per cent of women looking to enter the IT industry are confident there are jobs available to them.
