100 jobs for IT Alliance Group
Dublin-based IT Alliance Group has announced 100 jobs ahead of its attendance at Career Zoo in the Convention Centre later this month.
The jobs reflect demand across a number of sectors of the economy: IT; multinationals; the corporate sector; and companies moving to cloud computing.
Dara Mullen, Alliance Group director, pictured, said the company had noticed a significant increase in demand as a result of growing business confidence since the summer.
"Many companies are now moving ahead on IT projects which had previously been shelved because of the downturn," he said.
"This is reflected in the fact in 2015 companies are looking to hire IT teams rather than one or two contractors as was the case this time last year.
"For the first time since the financial crash of 2008, we are also seeing more buoyancy in rates for specific contractors."
Ms Mullen added that the group's vacancies were a good snapshot of current demand in the market as the company served customers across three sectors of the economy: large technology multinationals through its core project and services outsourcing business; the corporate sector in general through its IT resourcing division and the growing cloud market through its Auxilion subsidiary.
Skills in demand include cloud architects, programme managers, SharePoint, NET, Java and technical architects.
