Excellent news for IT professionals with SAP and security skills, such as SC and DV clearance . . . Permanent staff with SAP and IT security skills were in short supply last month, according to the latest Report on Jobs from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG. The report, which surveys 400 UK recruitment consultants and asks them to name specific skills that are in short supply, also indicated that more business analysts, management information (MI) analysts and enterprise software specialists were needed in the market. SAP contractors were also in short supply in July, but this month, the contractor staff that were reported in short supply were SQL developers and business analysts. Miriam Lee, Business Development Manager of Jenrick IT, a leading IT recruitment agency operating heavily in the SC and DV Cleared sector, agreed with the findings in this report:
"Without doubt, there is clear demand for IT Professionals within this sector; this is one of the main reasons we were invited to exhibit at the leading Defence and Security DSEi Show. Growth is being experienced in so many niche areas as the market continues to play an increasingly important role within the overall UK economy. Our experience within this sector means that we are able to offer an excellent variety of job roles for SAP IT Professionals, giving these individuals an opportunity to really advance their career."
