IT skills in demand

A number of specialist IT skills have come to the fore, as organisations seek to maximise efficiencies. Providing technical solutions in a structured and cost-effective manner remains a key priority, particularly for larger organisations.

This has led to sustained demand for architecture expertise: enterprise architects can still command excellent salaries where remuneration levels reflect the substantial cost savings that these individuals can bring to their organisations.

The focus on cost savings has also generated demand for business intelligence consultants, whose remit is to prepare management information reports, keep senior stakeholders informed on all aspects of company performance and highlight areas where resources need
to be diverted in order to optimise financial outlays.

SharePoint experience is also in demand, as this can make a real difference to the way businesses share information, which has a knock-on effect on engagement and productivity. A SharePoint specialist in London would typically expect to achieve a salary of £40-50k or £350/550 daily rate.

Finding increasingly cost-effective infrastructure solutions, enabling faster data access across organisations and sharing information to gain operational efficiencies have all led to a steady demand for specialist IT skill sets, which will provide a solid platform for economic recovery.
