Demand for hi-tech workers grew 26.6% in January 2006 over the year earlier month, Manpower Israel said Sunday, citing its monthly survey of newspaper announcements. As demand for workers increased 0.6% over December, MIT said it was the eighth month in a row that demand had risen on a month-to-month basis. January saw 3,045 help-wanted ads placed by the hi-tech sector, 1,148 of which were for programmers. Notices placed by recruitment agencies were the only type to decrease, by 22.3% to 605 advertisements placed, while the biggest growth came in the demand for hi-tech management.
