If you can dream up ways to save your company money by developing new systems and better ways of working then the job of business analyst might be for you.

It's a job that currently has a skills shortage in the IT world, and that - says recruitment consultant Tom Derbyshire - means strong job candidates can call the shots.

"Last year a lot of projects went on hold and companies stopped spending money, but right now there is an increased comfort in the economy, so a lot of companies are saying now is the time to start investing in the business again," says Derbyshire, of recruitment firm Robert Walters.

He says demand for IT business analysts is growing in the telco and finance sectors such as insurance and retail banking.

"The BNZ has had a massive recruitment drive this year and companies such as Vodafone bring in analysts to work on a particular project," he says.
