Why it’s a great time to be working in IT

Why it’s a great time to be working in IT in 2017

RTE news recently said that among Irish employers 87% planned to hire additional IT staff in 2017 and 50% planned to pay bonuses.” This is great news if you have the right skills. Interestingly too “IT roles were proving the hardest to fill” according to 80% of companies polled. Many Irish IT companies are also looking to hire more people, and were hoping to expand their companies if possible “33% of respondents said finding enough office space was a challenge.” Altogether, for the Irish IT sector, it is a positive time to be growing your business and therefore finding the right people is really important.
