Consumer led businesses most demanded IT roles: the market keeps growing

As technology moves forward, consumer led businesses are keen to keep pace with the latest developments. For talent in this sector, demand is high and the market fast paced. At Rullion, we have seen growing demand from organisations for specialists who can hit the ground running and drive fast, impactful, change, in their digital space.                                      

What type of roles are in demand?

 A range of roles from Programme Managers to PMO Analyst, Business Analysts and Project Managers with various project delivery skills are in high demand within this sector. The retail and e-commerce organisations have a desire to be market leading in their digital offering which heavily impacts their recruitment strategy and the type of candidate they want to hire. Candidates with specialisms in Customer Relationship Management, Agile, Customer Journey Projects and Digital / Multi-Channel are sought after.

 In the North-West, employers are looking for talent with experience specific to their unique challenges. For the private sector, contract roles remain common although we are seeing IR35 tip the balance towards permanent recruitment in the public sphere.

 How do we lead this market?

 We provide more than a traditional consultancy service by being market specialists.

Through engaging our clients and candidates in events, we share our expertise and provide more meaningful solutions.

We recently launched People in Projects North, creating an online space where specialists and organisations can pool ideas, alongside keeping up to date with our latest events.

 What does the future hold for this sector?

Digital transformation doesn’t show any signs of slowing down and we expect this type of transformation to continue to boom as businesses continue to change. We anticipate organisations will increasingly look for experts in defined specialisms as oppose to generalist candidates.

Rullion can connect you with the expertise you need. Contact us today to discuss how we can help your business stay ahead of the pack.
