Thinking of an IT Career?
There has been huge growth in the UK’s IT sector over the past few years and this is likely to continue unabated. Many technology hiring managers in the UK are reporting a skills shortage that is holding back growth in their business. Professionals with experience outside technical technology roles are now presented with exciting opportunities to change career and move into a dynamic and evolving industry.
There has been increasing specialism in IT careers with a greater focus on particular products as well as industry sectors. For example, you can pursue an IT career in investment banking, tax or management consultancy. European Commission research predicts that by 2020 there will be a shortage of around 900,000 IT professionals in Europe – about a quarter of which will be in the UK. As the technology sector continues to expand, technology hiring managers are increasingly looking for people from non-technology backgrounds to meet the changing needs of the industry.
