There is a dearth of skilled Share-Point staffers in New Zealand, says Tom Derbyshire, manager for IT recruiting at Robert Walters.
Commenting on the firm’s third-quarter market update, released late last month, Derbyshire says many organizations requiring SharePoint talent are training staff internally in the Microsoft collaboration technology, rather than hiring, as there are so few experienced SharePoint candidates on the market.
“It’s getting hard to find that talent,” Derbyshire says.
The SharePoint shortage is such that SharePoint is one of the skill-sets on the “shopping list” that the New Zealand company will be taking to a seminar this month in London, seeking to attract UK candidates to New Zealand, he says.
Candidates with experience of major project work in the financial services sector will also be sought-after at the London seminar, as they have skills that are in demand in New Zealand, he says.
“We’ll be looking for project managers and business analysts from the financial services sector.”
