Is the credit crunch affecting the ITIL jobs market?

Around this time last year I just started a new job and in truth it was one of a number of options open to me. This year there seems to be very little in the way of opportunities and the salaries on offer seem to have decreased.

John

I am embarking into a foray into the Contracting world. With my ITIL Armour and Prince2 shield.

Only issue is I don't really know what roles to go for. My real world background (not certification ) is around team leader, support manager and now major incident manager. However I would be keen to implement and re-engineer.

Do you have any nuggets of wisdom? Also do you know any agents that specialize in ITIL? I am free to work anywhere in UK really

Just in general, in the US, the sagging economy is affecting the whole job market in general. I work for a financial services company and while we are in pretty good shape compared to most we are not doing any hiring to make sure our overall overhead is controlled. We are also highly outsourced already and I would suspect that they will be cutting contractor/outsourcing spending before cutting employee jobs. It is one benefit of being highly outsourced, in that you can have a base of highly trained employees for critical and stable roles, while having contractor and outsourced jobs that can fluctuate up and down more easily, relative to these types of changes.

I gather from the alias that you are in the UK

I used Jobserve, jobsite and other contracting web sites that are for UK / EMEA

Expect roles similar to what you are doing.

Recruiters / head hunters dont experiment

See my post about contracting insights
