Research from Reed Recruitment has found that 68% of IT organisations will be recruiting in the coming quarter, with an extra 26% saying they’ll be making new hires to keep up staff numbers. While office-hopping might be in, IT organisations’ faithful employees needn’t worry too much about the possibility of a P45 and a large cardboard box waiting for them one morning, with only six per cent of IT organisations saying they expect to make redundancies in the next quarter. IT is storming ahead of other industries in recruitment, with only 27% of public sector and 38% of manufacturing organisations saying they’ll be adding new staff.
