IT Alliance to create 100 new tech jobs and lists Ireland’s most in-demand roles

11 Feb 2015

Dublin-based IT Alliance is expanding significantly as the Irish tech jobs market continues to improve and the IT outsourcing company is to create 100 jobs.

Already employing 500 people, the company’s jobs announcement comes ahead of its attendance at Career Zoo.

The new jobs at IT Alliance will include various tech and project manager roles, reflecting demand across three aspects of the tech environment – IT multinationals, the corporate sector and the move towards cloud.

“We have noticed a significant increase in demand as a result of growing business confidence since the summer,” said IT Alliance’s Dara Mullen.

“Many companies are now moving ahead on IT projects which had previously been shelved because of the downturn.

“This is reflected in the fact in 2015 companies are looking to hire IT teams rather than one or two contractors, as was the case this time last year. For the first time since the financial crash of 2008, we are also seeing more buoyancy in rates for specific contractors.”

According to research conducted by IT Alliance group, across its customer base, project managers are the most in-demand roles at the moment. Software developers with skills in SharePoint, Java and .NET are next in line, with infrastructure experts, such as technical architects, data centre specialists and cloud consultants rounding off the list.
