Skills in demand
ASP.Net Developers – As businesses now focus on upgrading from legacy-developed applications, these candidates are in hot demand.
ERP Project and Program Managers – Large implementations and upgrades of major applications are fuelling the demand for these candidates.
Microsoft Business Intelligence staff – As internal reporting and data processing is becoming increasingly important, so too is the demand for these specialists
SharePoint Developers – These candidates are highly sought for both short and long-term engagements. It is evident that candidates who possess these skills are able to demand higher rates, making it increasingly difficult to attract and secure these candidates in regional areas.
.Net Developers – These candidates are also short on the ground, particularly for contracts in regional areas. Most professional contractors who are open to relocation tend to gravitate towards the capital cities rather than regional locations.
Senior Systems Engineers with strong Citrix skills, MS Exchange and SharePoint knowledge who are very much hands on are also required.
Helpdesk – Internal promotions mean these entry-level candidates remain the highest in demand, while those with quality soft skills are particularly in demand.
Citrix and VMware professionals – Virtualisation projects are plentiful and managed service firms continue to move into this space, fuelling the demand for these candidates.
