IT firm LogicaCMG has started recruiting A-level students due to the shortage of IT graduates available.
The firm says that despite the number of students looking for graduate IT jobs, it is hard to find the people with the relevant qualifications.
Gary Argent, UK graduate recruit manager at LogicaCMG, said: "Recruiting is getting difficult because fewer students are signing up to IT degrees, and more employers are looking for IT staff."
He added that there are still good students out there "but it is increasingly difficult to find them".
A-level students who are recruited by the company will be enrolled on IT courses at a local university on a part-time basis. As part of their contracts they must stay with the company for three years after they graduate.
LogicaCMG employs around 40,000 people in 41 different countries. The company provides system integration, business consulting and IT outsourcing to a wide range of sectors.
