MillsHill & bricklayers – please RT – #cloud #virtualisation

A man see’s three bricklayers. He asks each ‘what are you doing’?

Bricklayer #1 says “I’m laying bricks”.

Bricklayer #2 says “I’m earning £10 per hour”.

Bricklayer #3 says “I’m building a beautiful cathedral & one day l’m going to drive past it & point it out to my children and say your dad built that”.

So, the point is – in your current job are you ‘laying bricks’ or ‘building a cathedral’?

Neil, with all this economic doom & gloom out there, why can’t I fill my urgent IT job? #Cloud #virtualisation #Citrix #VMware #Storage

Yup, I hear this ALL the time.

‘Surely with all this economic uncertainty there must be loads of IT candidates out there looking for work?’


Have a look at the following link, particularly the number of registered candidates column:


Consider this – these are the number of registered candidates on Jobserve per IT skill. Jobserve is one the most important job boards for IT professionals in the UK – its a big brand, its got a big reach & its savvy about attracting audiences. The majority of those numbers of registered candidates have shown little dramatic improvement in the last 14 months, i.e the IT candidate pool has not got dramatically bigger.


IMHO, its a combination of IT candidates not registering for new jobs because they have ‘bunkered down’, i.e. better the devil you know whilst this economic storm blows over and also a severe lack of new entrants into the IT industry.

So, if you want to fill that IT job use an agency to help you identify, qualify, interview & hire – because you’re fishing in a small pond.

Use MillsHill!

#millshilljobsindex – UK #cloud & #virtualisation jobs market all doom & gloom? plse RT


As you will see from the above stats ALL skills areas are reporting a drop in vacancy numbers.

Is this doom & gloom?

Not really, why?

1. Take out the Easter/half term effect. The MJI (MillsHill Jobs Index) stats are notoriously ‘spikey’ and remember key decision makers, much like you and me, take holidays. I’d be very surprised if those stats don’t show an improvement at the next reporting point.

2. Have a look at registered candidates column. This shows the number of candidates registered with Jobserve who mention that particular IT skill. The vast majority of the IT skills have seen little significant increases in the number of registered candidates during the reporting period.

In plain terms, your ‘competition’ for jobs has not changed little during the last 14 months or so. This could be due factors such as lack of new entrants coming into the IT industry, evidence of candidates ‘bunkering down’ in their IT job/contract until the economy changes, etc.
