Skills gap set to narrow as UK employees consider career change

A survey of 2000 UK professionals, conducted on behalf of CWJobs, has reported that over half of non-tech UK employees have considered or have already moved into the tech sector, with 28% having considered the change following Covid-19. This move into tech could help close the tech skills gap that has long-been discussed in the UK.

Covid-19 has amplified the need for talent within the tech sector, as businesses, adapting to remote working, have relied on IT departments. As a result, according to the report, 45% of IT workers stated that their company is actively recruiting for employees within this sector, offering a chance for employees looking to retrain and upskill.
