ReThink Recruitment Director, Michael Bennett, said that “London has a high concentration of financial services firms, which are heavy users of IT skills. Many of them responded to the downturn by cutting their IT departments to the bone. As businesses levels have picked up, many have found themselves understaffed and have had to replace a lot of the skills that were shed during the recession. We have seen a substantial increase in demand for candidates skilled in these areas. The wave of mergers between financial institutions brought about by the credit crunch has fuelled demand for IT candidates in London and the South East to handle post M&A integration of banking IT systems. Regions outside London and the South East tend to be much more reliant on the public sector and with hiring freezes now implemented this may stifle the creation of IT jobs”.
