Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that the chairman of the Association of Recruitment Consultants has seen a marked increase in IT recruitment.
Adrian Marlowe was speaking in response to figures from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG Report on Jobs that showed there has been particularly strong growth in the IT sector in terms of permanent placements.
He said: "As far as IT is concerned, our members have also experienced an increase in IT employment requirements. At the moment, there is definitely an increase in work of that nature.
"I think that having laid low for 18 months or so, those organisations that have larger IT requirements are taking the view that they need to upgrade their systems, hence the IT requirement in that regard."
The growth shown in the report brought the recruitment level to its strongest reading since July 2007 and could be construed as a positive sign for recent university leavers.
