3 Great Tech Roles To Apply For This Week
Looking for a new job in tech? The UK is expected to add nearly 15,000 technology-related jobs this year, according to a recent report from the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), a nonprofit association for the information technology (IT) industry and workforce.
The report also states that there are already two million tech workers across the various tech hubs and tech cities in the UK. These workers account for 6.3% of the total workforce, and the industry is contributing £82.6 billion to the economy, which equates to 5.5%.
Despite fears of a looming recession, global economic pressures and worries over recent layoffs in many tech firms over the spring and summer as they culled under-performing projects or looked to shore up bottom lines, the jobs picture is still broadly good. Many areas within the IT industry are thought to be – so far – relatively recession-proof, particularly sectors such as AI, cybersecurity and cloud services.
That’s reflected in the fact that nearly 20% of all employer tech job postings in 2021 were for positions in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, automation, blockchain and the internet of things, or jobs requiring skills in those areas, according to CompTIA’s report.
“Over the last few years, the technology industry and technology professionals have proven how vital they are to the entire nation. The drastic changes and ongoing uncertainty highlighted how important a robust technology ecosystem is to the success of the economy,” says Estelle Johannes, senior director of global communities at CompTIA.
So, if you’re thinking about a move within the sector, then the data indicates it is a good time to look for a new opportunity. Below, we’ve got an overview of three jobs that are currently hiring, and there are plenty more to discover on the City AM Job Board too.
