Demand for senior IT executives has soared over the past few months, according to a new survey by recruitment agency InterExec.
The firm said its survey of 2,000 head-hunters showed that demand for high-flyers had trebled, with IT professionals seeing the greatest increase at 194 per cent. This was followed by management consultants, managing directors, sales roles, bankers and accountants.
The agency said it had trawled about 50 per cent of the UK’s unadvertised head-hunter vacancies for its survey.
“The demand for senior executives across almost all sectors is increasing, with IT and management consultants being most highly sought,” said Kit Scott Brown, chief executive of InterExec.
“However, while the demand for senior executives is increasing, the fact that almost a third of head-hunters have quit the industry over the past couple of years means that many senior executives may be left unaware of the employment opportunities, which is why an increasing number are looking to employ their own ‘agent’ to manage their prospects.”
