Mon Oct 05 2009


(PRWeb UK) 4 October 2009 -- CV Screen the specialist IT Recruitment Agency reports a 23% increase in the demand for IT professionals in the 3rd quarter of 2009.

During the same period CV Screen also saw a 25% decline in the number


of applicants per vacancy. On average CV Screen received 68

applications per role in September, down from the heights of 109 seen

in May.

Commenting on the findings CV Screen's Matthew Iveson commented "We're hopeful that the IT Jobs market is over the worst with an encouraging increase in the number of roles registered in quarter 3."

When asked about what changes are taking place in the employment


market, Iveson commented "We are now seeing confidence returning to the

IT jobs market. Many IT professionals who had put their career

aspirations on hold due to the economic climate are now beginning to

test the water."

Iveson added "With unemployment rising and the economic climate


bleak, many IT professionals sensibly decided to remain with their

current employers until the market improved. There are early signs that

these candidates are beginning to seek new opportunities where better

training, salaries and long term career opportunities are on offer."
