CompTIA Report Shows Turnaround in UK Employer Demand for IT Professionals

More than 166,000 job postings for core IT positions in Q3LONDON, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --A Demand for technology professionals across the United Kingdom experienced a bounce back in Q3, with more than 166,000 job postings from employers, according to an analysis by CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the global technology industry.Job postings for core technology occupations totaled 166,603 for the quarter, CompTIA's examination of data from Burning Glass Technologies Labour Insights shows. The Q3 total was 33% higher than Q2, when the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting staffing changes implemented by many firms led to a sharp decline in technology job postings. Though not immune from the effects of the pandemic, demand for technology workers in the UK has held up for much of 2020. The number of Q3 job postings was just 1 percent lower than the total for Q3 2019, compared to a 19-percent decrease in all job ads. IT positions accounted for 11% of all job postings in Q3."Even with the difficult decisions organisations were forced to make over the spring and summer, many did all they could to maintain the tech teams that support remote workers, secure data and e-commerce sites and maintain the digital links to customers and partners," said Graham Hunter, vice president, skills certification, CompTIA.
