Demand for IT contractors and other temporary technology specialists recovered from historically low levels last month.
According to the latest Report on Jobs from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), opportunities for IT professionals rose to a rating of 51.9 from May's low of 49.2.
However, the figure is still significantly lower than the rate of 57.5 posted in June of last year.
The ongoing crisis in the eurozone has been cited as one of the key reasons that employers' confidence is "fragile" and why such fluctuations in demand have occurred.
REC chief executive Kevin Green said: “I expect as we continue to make slow progress out of recession that we’ll see this kind of a ‘zig zag’ pattern with some good months followed by weaker ones – rather than sustained periods of uninterrupted jobs growth.
“But it’s also important to note that the picture is not uniform across all industries. If you are a skilled engineer [or] an IT professional…there is still increasing demand for you from employers.”
Part of the problem with recruiting IT contractors also comes from a lack of skills in certain areas, Mr Green added.
Indeed, the Report on Jobs suggests that there are a dearth of skilled people in .NET, Java and Agile roles as well as C++, SAP, testing and security.
The report follows on from a similar study conducted by the skills council e-skills which stated that by 2020 another 129,000 people will need to be recruited to the IT sector in order to bridge skills gaps.
The body warned that this shortfall comes from people leaving the industry and not being replaced with people that have the relevant knowledge and experience.
Indeed, only 19,000 IT workers are expected to change to new roles in the industry over the next eight years and the rest will have to be plucked from other sectors.
