Cloud computing: recession combatant?
A couple of weeks ago we wrote about the increasing demand for IT workers in the private sector. This week, we have shifted focus to IT workers who have skills specifically in cloud computing.
After Google announced that it was setting up a London base for high tech entrepreneurs and Amazon publicised a series of training courses for cloud skills in both London and Manchester, news came in that cloud firms are beginning to grow and invest in their work forces.
According to the operations director of recruitment specialist Resource on Demand (ROD), there has been a renewed confidence in the hiring of cloud professionals and the number of clients opening their doors to recruiters like ROD.
ROD also claims that IT staff with cloud skills are in high demand with cloud specific jobs increasing by 53 percent. With these skills attracting employers at every corner, could investing in cloud skills be the path to recession immunity?
While unemployment increases around the UK, cloud computing skills are proving to be very popular and are showing no signs of letting up.
