The Wellington contract market continues to be busy. Demand is especially significant for project managers, solution architects and business analysts. Until recently, the permanent market was relatively quiet, however, this has slowly started to pick up, particularly over the last two weeks. Some organisations are also looking to convert hourly rate contractors into fixed term or permanent roles
The advent of the pandemic has seen many businesses implementing work from home initiatives for staff. I predict that flexible work arrangements will be the norm going into the future.
If you are looking for a high paying job, then the IT sector offers the highest average salary. We have not observed any notable change or decrease in salaries and contractor rates over the past few months, so the existing salaries are as they stand. The demand for IT staff across Wellington is driven by automation, businesses moving to the cloud, digital and mobile technologies, transformation and restructures.
