The current Tech Hiring Landscape

Hiring activity remains high across many functional role and technical disciplines, resulting in quality IT candidates in high demand across many technical disciplines.

High demand:

  • Developers
  • Site Reliability Engineers
  • Cyber Security Professionals
  • Devops Engineers
  • Cloud Specialists
  • Product SMEs

Right now, it’s a little easier to hire in other disciplines such as project management, infrastructure support and software testing.

Although finding the right tech talent remains challenging for many organisations, it remains critical to secure the right talent.

Recruiting well: 

  • Drives innovation.
  • Increases productivity.
  • Enhance a team’s overall technical expertise.
  • Reduce time & expense on training.
  • Reduces staff churn.

Ultimately creating a strong IT department to help your organisation thrive.

All this considered, it makes sense to strive to hire the very best candidate every time and select candidates from the widest talent pools. We can support you in this endeavour, given out unrivalled candidate reach (in-house candidate database, extensive partner advertising / CV database channels and LinkedIn Recruiter licences).

Our statistics show that salary and work/life balance considerations in the form of home working / hybrid working remain the most important factors when an IT worker is considering a job move. There is an expectation that hybrid working should be offered as a minimum nowadays, with fewer IT workers willing to consider roles requiring four to five days in the office. Two days a week in the office appears to be where most organisations are balancing their hybrid models. Career path and working culture are also important considerations for IT candidates.

Given IT candidates are in demand it’s important to provide a good experience during the interview process. This means recognising that candidates will be assessing the opportunity you have, rather than just trying to impress. Organisations need to evidence reasons why candidates should join and ensure the interview process is not too lengthy. Good candidates can secure multiple offers in a matter of weeks.
