I.T. Alliance Group Announces Big Demand for SQL Database and Project Management Specialists

The company also reports a significant increase in applications to its Irish headquarters post Brexit from EU nationals working in the UK.

The jobs cover the full IT spectrum with infrastructure engineers, specifically SQL database specialists and project managers the most sought after. The roles are in I.T. Alliance’s core outsourcing business; its IT resourcing division, and its cloud transformation and support subsidiary, Auxilion.

Based on an analysis of 180 applications either side of the Brexit referendum date, the company also reports that applications from EU nationals working in the UK trebled following the leave outcome. In the three months up to the Brexit referendum, the group received 10 applications from EU nationals in the UK. After June 23rd this jumped to 30 within two weeks.

“Brexit appears to have caused uncertainty and unease amongst a number of EU nationals working in the UK, even though these are highly skilled people who one would have expected that the UK would be keen to retain post Brexit,” commented Dara Mullen, Director, People & Talent, I.T. Alliance Group. “A significant number of candidates specifically referred to concerns around Brexit as a motivation to relocate to Ireland.”

I.T. Alliance Group, which operates offices in Sheffield, London, Belfast and Dublin, says that there is particularly strong demand for Microsoft SQL production engineers due to increasing adoption of Microsoft cloud computing and cloud services applications. It also reports widespread demand for project managers, particularly technical project managers across the UK and Ireland.

Founded in 1997, the core business of I.T. Alliance Group (www.italliancegroup.com) is as an outsourcing partner to household names across the world’s biggest IT outsourcing companies.

In 2012, the group launched Auxilion (www.auxilion.com), an international cloud transformation and cloud computing support company, which now employs 80 people, providing 24×7 cloud services to UK, Irish and international corporates.

In 2011, the company launched its I.T. contracting wing, I.T. Alliance Resourcing Services.
