A Boom Year for IT Recruitment

The IT recruitment space covers many niche areas and experiences constant change. Generally speaking 2015 was a strong  year for IT professionals who have upskilled to the new in-demand technologies and methodologies.

In 2015 there was increased demand for skilled professionals with 3-5 years’ automation experience combined with strong coding skills (C#, Java, Python). Permanent positions opened as many start-ups and younger companies looked to ramp up their technology teams. The drive to get more hands-on coding and automation specialists has created interest from overseas and encouraged the local talent pool to upskill in this area.

The other major growth area was of course big data and data analytics, especially around Dublin but increasingly also in the regions. As businesses of all sizes seek to exploit their information assets and find new ways to use it they are seeking specialised analytical skill sets and the talent pool is becoming stretched. Degrees in data analytics are quite new, which means there are qualified people coming on stream who are suited to junior to mid-level roles but filling senior roles is more of a challenge. In some cases companies are looking to continental Europe for big data professionals and analysts with more than seven years’ experience. Candidates with a PhD in a quantitative field of study (such as statistics, economics or engineering) are in demand as data scientists.

In software development we saw a significant uplift in demand for .net specialists but the local talent pool is quite small and salary expectations are high. This has led some companies seeking to hire international candidates on more commercial terms. The demand for Java-based developers remains; however, new companies are increasingly choosing other technologies.

Web and mobile development continues to be a strong area of growth and there is a particularly acute shortage of candidates with niche skills at commercial level. Companies are favouring Python for development projects so there is strong demand for candidates experienced in this language.

At more senior levels there is steadily increasing demand for experienced project managers who combine technical skills with a proven track record of stakeholder and client management. These professionals are difficult to find as software development is not always the career path for project managers. Salaries have therefore gone up slightly and the competition for talent may sharpen further in 2016. Hiring organisations have needed to tailor better total remuneration and benefits packages to attract and retain the best IT senior managers.
A general trend is the growth of hybrid roles, for example .net plus strong front end experience for a more C# user interface-based projects.

There are plenty of new opportunities around Cork and Limerick – many technology companies (both established companies and SMEs and start-ups) are based in Munster and several multinationals have set up IT shared service and competence centres.

Overall we saw upward pressure on salaries, which we expect to continue in 2016.
