Are you working in the technology jobs sector, if not why not? The technology jobs sector in the UK has witnessed growth over the last couple of years and is on the up once more. Between 2012 and 2013 there was a 4.6% increase in IT jobs alone. Alongside IT jobs, other job sectors that were the most improved in the UK were scientific, manufacturing, hospitality, catering, finance and accounting.
The infographic below on the effects of technology in jobs looks at these most improved job sectors mentioned above and at the declining job sectors in the UK by salary. Alongside this data, you will see on a UK map which top 5 cities are dominating the technology job market; London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol and Reading are cities with the highest tech salaries and when it comes to the most vacancies London, Leeds and Manchester are currently standing out.
When it comes to the destination of London, it is not only a city that attracts a high volume of visitors but attracts investments too. Already 600,000 people are employed on the technology and digital landscape, and there has been a 16.6% growth in jobs. So, why flock to London for work? As you will see in the infographic below on technology jobs there is much investment and funding being provided. Alongside Facebook and Google Samsung recently joined these top tech players by opening an innovation centre at Fleet Place located in London. By opening this centre it opens up a whole new technological world in design, software and product development which all goes towards increasing jobs and economic growth.
It is not only Samsung making a mark, The Technology strategy board and the Prime Minister David Cameron announced that £15.5 million would be packaged together to fund new start-ups and by 2017 the high tech industry will create even more jobs through new constructions and railway links. All these investments and developments help the UK connect together and grow in business.
The future is now being supercharged for delivery; internet technologies are being re-defined, augmented technology will be advancing productivity in jobs, robots will have job roles and this is just a piece of the future we have to look forward to.
