IT jobs outlook strong for contractors

Professionals looking for IT jobs may want to revisit contracting: employers are now more likely to hire ICT contractors than permanent employees, according to the latest Hudson Report.

The Hudson Report, released this week, shows intention to hire IT contractors rose 2.0pp (percentage points) to 29.4% this quarter, the highest of all professions.

Intention to hire permanent IT employees, on the other hand, decreased, falling 3.6pp to 25.2%.

The figures suggest more IT employers could hire contractors than permanent staff this quarter, a result unseen in The Hudson Report in recent years.
