Digital marketing and tech is one of the most sought after and sexy industries to work in. People are dynamic, innovation moves at the speed of light, and the skills needed are ever-evolving.
Consumer demand drives this. People’s insatiable appetite for communication in every format from Whatsapp to Twitter and Snapchat to Blippar shows no signs of ebbing. In fact, brands are challenged daily to pivot and re-invent themselves to make the lives of their fans even easier.
It’s no surprise that the digital industries are growing at a phenomenal rate. Employing over 1.5 million people in the last three years we have grown at three times the rate of the rest of the UK.
By the end of 2017 estimates suggest that there will be 750,000 unfilled digital jobs.
