The IT and technology sector is one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. A driver of innovation as well as economic growth, the sector is an incredibly exciting place to be. And with more jobs advertised than there are active job seekers, it is a candidate’s market. So, if you are looking for new opportunities, be it in a fast-paced start-up, innovative tech company or smaller IT department, there has been no better time to land yourself a new IT career. Here’s why we think you should consider a new IT job and the careers that are going to do well in 2023.   

Why should you work in IT?

· Flexibility – For most IT jobs, most of your entire role is based online, meaning that you have the freedom to work at home, in an office, at a café or even nearby to a sunny beach (did you know that IT jobs in Spain are on the rise?)

· High earning – Now more than ever, excellent IT and technology skills have a high price tag. Most of our lives are becoming digitised or automated in some way and knowing your way around software could earn you a seriously lucrative career.

· Autonomy – the market is saturated with IT jobs and there are simply not enough skilled professionals to fill the vacancies. So, you have the freedom to choose a role and a way of working that best suit you. Some benefit from contracting – working shorter periods of time within different projects – whilst others prefer a permanent role, both of which are abundantly available.
