The new year is barely underway and the Be-IT office is going like a fair. Perhaps we should take those Christmas lights down now.
More seriously, it really IS busy: there are lots, and lots and lots of IT jobs out there, which is a reflection of the booming state of the industry, which is great. There is also, in recognition of this fact, a special event organised by our friends at S1jobs, called Tech Week. From 26th – 30th January, S1 is holding its first virtual career fair, created specifically for IT professionals with four distinct areas of expertise – Developers, Project Management & Leadership, Analysts and Security & Infrastructure. You can find out more information and register for it here: http://www.s1jobs.com/recruiterprofiles/s1-tech-week/
Be-IT will be playing a key role in Tech Week. Over the next few days and weeks we are going to ramp up our activity, and you’ll see lots more information, blogs and news stories both here on our website and also on S1. We’ve conducted a fascinating salary survey, the results of which are now available and we have also gleaned a lot of useful information from the survey about what IT candidates are really looking for, how they see the market and what their aspirations are for the future. Join us over the rest of January and beyond - and together we’ll make Scotland’s IT industry even bigger, better and more successful than ever!
