    Many IT departments plan to increase staff numbers in 2011. As reported by V3.co.uk, demand for new staff will be fuelled by growing IT areas such as project management, database administration and design, business intelligence, PC and technical support, cloud and software-as-a-service systems, network administration, virtualisation and security. However, it is possible that qualified staff will be hard to find. The IT sector is forecast to grow at an annual rate of 5.1% to 2015 and will drive employment growth, creating an additional 93,000 jobs by 2015, according to the latest Business Services Prospects report by economics consultancy the Centre for Economics and Business Research.

    Have read a few documents of "growth" due to happen in the industry, which is a good thing i guess

    But it also means the dirty scamming companies are going to be rubbing their hands together - who advertise "The average salary of a job in IT is £40k, give us £3,000 and we'll screw you over"

    If that is the case more and more people will be lured into false promises, and I'm sure we'll see some more of them on this forum.

    I have certainly seen a marked increase in network engineer positions in my area since the turn of the year.

    I'm planning to increase the size of my department, however most likely we won't get the funding to do so :(
