Everyone working within the IT industry knows about the skills shortage currently in the marketplace.

Whilst this is bad news for CIOs that want to build a technically-gifted IT department on a budget, its good for IT professionals with niche skills. IT recruitment agencies like Crimson are seeing a steady increase in salaries and contract rates as organisations compete to attract and retain skilled IT staff assets.

  1. Digital
  2. Full-Stack Development
  3. Project Management
  4. QA / Testing
