UK Jobs market: #VMware #Citrix #Cloud #Virtualisation #Storage – #millshilljobsindex

Stats courtesy of Jobserve.

Latest MillsHill Jobs Index stats below.

Remember these stats cover a 2 week reporting period. Do note last reporting period included a Bank Holiday which would skew the figures slightly downwards.

All skill areas show a fall in both permanent & contract jobs with the exception of cloud permanent jobs rising nearly 7%.

If you look at the year high and year low numbers for each skill, then most areas are ‘trading’ below middle, (if you catch my drift).

…thinking ‘the market’ may not know if its Arthur or Martha at the moment?

#vmware jobs #cloud jobs – Amazing stats from the latest #millshilljobsindex !!! please RT

Latest MillsHill Jobs Index stats below – courtesy, as ever, from the lovely people at Jobserve.

So whats the ‘amazing’ bit then?

Well you’d think OK, Easter time people not at work, loads of time off thus good time to crank up the job/contract search.

…er, you’d be wrong. Note, by on large, big falls in no. of applications & searches!

Thus Mr or Mrs Hirer, holiday does mean holiday for candidates! If you need to hire around the major holiday time then start early! Recruitment is seasonal.

Comments/opinions most welcome!

Applications down 17% for perm #virtualisation jobs – #millshilljobindex – plse RT or comment

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

  • Number of applications and candidates down 17%
  • Conclusions: its not easy to find permanent virtualisation staff & if you want a permanent virtualisation job you have less competition than looking for a contract role, i.e. 6.3 applications per each virtualisation permanent role
  • The rush of the ‘New Year, New Job’ applications is over?

Numbers of UK #Virtualisation and #Cloud jobs, courtesy of #jobserve, plse RT or comment

Thought it would be interesting to track number of jobs by keyword to track growth of cloud & virtualisation skills.

Planning to track these keywords on a 2 weekly basis aka the ‘MillsHill Job Index’!

So, courtesy of Jobserve these are the stats for the last 2 weeks ending on Friday 20th January 2012.

Key:

References in Ads posted means both contract and perm jobs

Number of applications in total for all jobs

Registered Candidates on Jobserve with an interest in a certain skill/technical area

Searches equals number of searches for jobs with that skill/technical area

Skill

References in Ads Posted

Apps

Registered Candidates

Searches

Virtualisation

445

5,188

2,339

929

Cloud

481

3,996

2,286

785

I would imagine that the stats of most interest will be the number of ads posted and number of registered candidates, i.e. how many jobs are out there and how much competition do I have?

Comments welcome.
