Today, every company is becoming a tech company. And with so many firms are on the lookout for coders, software engineers and data scientists (among other roles), it’s getting harder than ever for employers to find people with these high demand skill sets.
Jobseekers in the U.K. are increasingly aware of the opportunities presented by the shortage in tech talent. Last year, for instance, we saw more than 100% growth in searches for jobs in devops and cybersecurity on Indeed.
But the gap between employer demand and jobseeker supply for tech jobs persists. Meanwhile, the business impact of this talent shortage runs deep, hurting employers through lost revenue, slower product development and increased employee burnout.
And as more industries are disrupted by software, still more coders, software engineers and data scientists will be needed. So what should employers do? In the infographic below we cast a critical eye over the situation. Read on for key stats and insights.
