IT Certs ‘Accelerating’ fastest in 3 Years reports that IT salaries have improved faster than they have in 3 years in 2011. The IT sector also saw an increase by 25% in the advertised jobs in Q4 of 2011. The main reason for the splurge is the increase in demand for specialist staff. Last year, Developers made up 41% of all IT jobs advertised.

SQL Programming was most sought after in 2011, while demand for Agile methodology increased by 59% in the last quarter of 2011, compared to Q4 of 2010.

"While there's no denying the impact the economy has had on the rate of growth, these statistics show there is recovery, and the private sector and southeast of England are leading this," said Richard Nott, website director at CWJobs.

"Last year, the spotlight was on the IT industry, particularly on areas such as security and mobile. As new issues and opportunities continue to shape the sector, skills requirements and job opportunities will change accordingly," he added.
