Has the IT skills gap slammed shut?
The REC is saying the supply of IT skills is outweighing demand.
The IT skills gap is no longer, according to a report from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).
According to the research, there are more "ICT ready candidates" than market demand for their skills. In previous years, the sector has struggled to find enough skilled workers to fill roles.
While it may not be such good news for those looking for a job after losing out during the economic turmoil of the past year, the REC said it could be good for clients looking to boost recruitment.
Jeff Brooks, chairman of the REC's technology group, said in a statement: "It is encouraging to see this growth in demand. Our members are showing increasing confidence in the sector and many of them are looking to hire more recruiters as a result."
Certain skill sets are still in demand, including SQL, C#, .Net and Linux, the REC added.
