Advertised vacancies for IT roles have jumped 8% year on year in the second quarter of 2014.
Within the second quarter, data revealed that the fastest rise in advertised IT vacancies was in the Midlands. Vacancies also increased in the North West between the first and second quarters of this year.
Natasha Brooks, head of information technology recruitment at Robert Waters UK said: "These figures emphasise the crucial role of technology and how it touches all parts of the business, as reflected by strong demand for professionals offering a hybrid of technical and business skills.
"High levels of market confidence are in turn driving increased job flows as candidates look to take advantage of favourable market conditions."
Brooks believes the hiring of IT data security experts remains buoyant. She added: "As does recruitment of professionals with expert knowledge of extracting, manipulating and presenting data. Skilled IT support professionals are also sought after as businesses look to in-source these roles to improve quality control.
"With volumes increasing, and job seekers receiving multiple offers, shrewd employers are streamlining recruitment processes to land preferred candidates."
