IT and technical jobs activity boosts recruitment in Q2 and Q3 10

Andrea Daly 15.11.2010

The IT jobs market has been particularly active in Q2 and Q3 with a 26% increase in new IT positions in September over the previous month.

Technical requirements for developers have become more critical, not only core languages such as Java, .Net and PHP, but also knowledge of the latest platforms and products such as web services and Sharepoint, and enterprise applications including Oracle and SAP. There has been a recent rise in demand for staff in these areas for both contract and permanent position.

One of the companies that we work with, Dun & Bradstreet, is the world’s leading source of business information which earlier this year established a business operations centre in Dublin.  Like many commercial businesses with IT operations in Ireland, D&B is particularly interested in professionals with Java and J2EE experience. Ireland currently has a proliferation of young, technology driven businesses which are attracting world class talent and a business like D&B offers equally exciting opportunities as a well-established, global market leader, offering commercial experience beyond the IT sector.

Our technical specialists have seen a 33% increase in new job opportunities in September over August 2010, with growth across most industry sectors including purchasing and supply chain management; life sciences and operational excellence specialist staff within the manufacturing and financial services sectors, including Six Sigma and Lean Specialists. Only a few months ago, we started working with US pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly, as their exclusive supplier of finance and multi-lingual candidates as Eli Lilly opens a new shared services centre in Cork.

With multinational businesses as well as small and medium-sized firms actively looking for talented professionals in Ireland, Morgan McKinley is holding a recruitment event on Thursday 11th November, open to professionals looking for opportunities across the IT and technical sectors.
