    Demand for IT contractors rises

    As the temperature rises, so does the need for temporary IT workers

    A report published this week has shown an increase in demand for IT contractors.

    Developers, Unix specialists, analysts, and project managers now command an average rate of £27.60 per hour, up from £27.01 in May, according to a Contractor UK market report. This is the highest rate paid to contractors this year, exceeding January's previous high of £27.56.

    This rate rise is partly caused by the summer, according to the report, with short-term contracts more common as full-time workers go on holiday. This is compounded by contractors themselves taking breaks after completing six-month contracts.

    For the full story.
