The availability of IT support jobs has increased by
almost 20 per cent in the last two years, according to new
Research conducted by IT recruiter ReThink Recruitment
discovered that support roles now account for 30.1 per cent of all
IT jobs advertised on job boards, compared to 24 per cent two years
However, the study also found that 6.5 per cent fewer new jobs were
making it onto advertisement boards in the second quarter of this
year compared to 2006.
Commenting on the findings, Jon Butterfield, managing director at
ReThink Recruitment, said: “The effect of offshoring IT jobs has
been double edged. Pay rates have been pegged back, but job
creation at the entry level has not dried up as was mooted by some
"These new projects require support teams, and it’s not always
appropriate or advantageous to base these staff offshore."
Elsewhere, it has been reported that many firms are still ignoring
the security risks associated with outsourcing.
