Still demand for IT workers, survey shows
A new survey has revealed that there is still demand for IT workers, despite increasing numbers of redundancies due to the recession.

Carried out by ReThink, the poll discovered that 34 per cent of IT directors are planning to increase numbers of IT staff over the next 12 months.

This is compared to 20 per cent who said they were planning on reducing headcounts, as well as 46 per cent admitting that they had introduced a recruitment freeze this year.

Michael Bennett, director at ReThink Recruitment, said: "On balance, IT directors remain reasonably optimistic about taking on new staff and skills – very few expect a repeat of the job cut carnage that followed the 2001-2 post-dot com downturn."

Personnel Today recently revealed that Google is using a slowdown in recruitment to move its employees around various departments so that they can gain more experience.
