All companies in Belgium are looking for IT experts. This is of course an exaggeration, but not too far from the truth. Owing to the short spread of Belgium, a technology expert will have at least 2-3 offers in hand. This is the current state of Belgium IT market, and something you have to deal with as a recruiter, a business owner, a CEO or a CIO. 

In addition, the overall job vacancies in Belgium have gone back to the pre-pandemic levels. As a result, there is a huge demand-supply gap between the IT experts and businesses in Belgium. This in turn has resulted into increased time to fill the open positions.  

Large-scale organizations have a massive vendor/supplier network in which one single requirement is shared with ‘50-300 IT-Suppliers’ at a time. IT consultants are bombarded through various channels like LinkedIn InMail, LinkedIn Connection request, Cold calls, Email Campaigns and what not. This contributes to a fierce competition among IT-recruiters to attract the right person. 

After sensing this inflated demand, the candidate can tactically raises his/her tariff. In the IT sector in the Netherlands, pay rates have gone up significantly, rising from around €80 per hour in 2019 to the current rate of €109 an hour. This high demand for tech workers and limited number of available candidates is resulting in companies offering higher pay across Europe
