Number of Hadoop contract jobs up 500%.

Significant move? Time will tell.

UK #VMware contract market UP 6.53% – ‘sluggish’ – #millshilljobsindex – plse RT or cooment

Stats courtesy of Jobserve – http://www.jobserve.co.uk

Remember we would have expected a rise in the number of VMware contracts because last reporting period included the double bubble UK bank holiday.

So a rise we got but not a major one, i.e. 6.53%.

Its worth observing that the data to date is very ‘spikey’. My mathematical helper on theses stats has worked that out that due to ‘data spikey-ness’ only a rise of 16%+ is significant.

Thus not much to report about with a small 6.53% increase.

…combine that with looking at the year high/year low numbers (340/233) then 261 VMware contract vacancies indicates we’re trading towards the bottom of that range.

In very simple terms then, VMware contract market is sluggish?

…I could do a Barclays type spin of these numbers if you prefer but that would wrong & I don’t fancy prison! 馃槈

UK #VMware contract job market – down 9.26% – #millshilljobsindex – plse RT or comment

Latest VMware contract job stats courtesy of those lovely lovely people at Jobserve.

No. of VMware contracts down 9.26%.

Don’t despair though we’ve just had a double bubble Bank Holiday in the last 2 weeks and that will skew the jobs stats down.

If we’d had those 2 extra working days I’m sure the number of VMware contracts would have shown a positive gain.

Please note we’ve had an聽evolutionary step in how you can visualise the MillsHill Jobs Index!

Using the web link below you will see a moving graph of the UK jobs market for virtualisation & cloud skills.
