Dublin-based IT outsourcing company IT Alliance is expanding significantly as the Irish tech jobs market continues to improve. Already employing 500 people, the company plans to expand their workforce by hiring 100 new staff.
The roles will be across various tech and project manager roles, reflecting demand across three aspects of the tech environment – IT multinationals, the corporate sector and the move towards cloud.
We have noticed a significant increase in demand as a result of growing business confidence since the summer,” says IT Alliance’s Dara Mullen.
“Many companies are now moving ahead on IT projects which had previously been shelved because of the downturn.
“This is reflected in the fact in 2015 companies are looking to hire IT teams rather than one or two contractors, as was the case this time last year. For the first time since the financial crash of 2008, we are also seeing more buoyancy in rates for specific contractors.”
Commenting on particular skills that were in demand across the whole Irish IT industry, she referred to:
- Cloud architects
- Programme managers
- Java and
- Technical architects
According to research conducted by IT Alliance group, across its customer base, project managers are the most in-demand roles at the moment. Software developers – including SharePoint, Java, .NET, CRM, testing and analysts – are next in line, with infrastructure experts like technical architects, datacentre specialists and cloud consultants rounding off the top three.
