Skills in demand
Infrastructure Specialists – Due to cost-cutting initiatives across Federal Government and the requirement to drive extra value in the contracting space, there has been an increase in demand for candidates with generalist infrastructure skills (server, network and exchange).
Applications Packagers – A number of departments are in the process of moving to a Windows 7 Desktop environment. In addition to this we are seeing deploying mobile applications to iPhones/ iPads. for both these reasons there is still a high demand for Applications Packagers.
Cloud Computing Specialists – A collaboration between a number of national research organisations has seen an increase in demand for Infrastructure Specialists with exposure to the design and implementation of cloud technology across multiple infrastructure disciplines.
Data Centre Architects – These candidates are in demand owing to a number of Data Centre Migrations across the Federal Government.
Transition Specialists –There are major programs of work in both the Federal and State Government technology service divisions, which are ‘insourcing’ and centralising their entire ICT Infrastructure. This is creating requirements for both contract and permanent candidates, from project managers through to more technical-level roles who have exposure to these transitions.
