There are very positive signs from a recruitment perspective moving into the new financial year. After a solid FY 14/15, it seems the momentum continues. High caliber candidates are either actively looking for work, or indeed, at the very least, open to conversations about opportunities that are part of organisations that are transforming and diversifying. Candidate appear to want to work for companies that have a clear picture of who they want to be.
The IT industry is changing at pace, with key developments and innovations across digital, cloud computing, mobility solutions and big data driving employment opportunities and creating vacancies where previously there had been none. This ever changing environment is both creating opportunities and challenges within the technology sector from an employment perspective.
We are seeing significant investment from multi-national’s into their APAC operations, with European and US headquartered companies looking to aggressively go after more market share in this region. This correlates with more senior IT sales jobs in Australia.
We are very busy at the moment, which is always a good barometer of our area of the market. There does appear to be quite a lot of discrete executive recruitment being conducted. Roles we are recruiting for are primarily senior sales and executive opportunities from senior BDM’s up to Sales Directors, General Manager of Sales, Managing Director, CEO and CFO roles. This is across all areas of ITC and professional services including software, services and infrastructure.
This is a good time to be looking and hiring, but you must do your due diligence.
Wishing everyone the best for this new financial year.
