The tech scene is currently experiencing levels of growth we haven’t seen since the early days of the Silicon Valley bubble, with IT expenditure expected to hit $4.5 trillion by early 2023 – a 5.5% increase.
The increased demand for cloud-based services brought on from our permanent move to hybrid work as a result of the pandemic, and the growth of everything-as-a-service platforms has resulted in a talent shortage across the tech sector, meaning professionals and those with experience are in a stronger position than ever before.
In fact, a global survey of tech workers recently showed that those who are interested in moving roles, can demand a financial increase of up to 12% on salaries that are, on average, higher than normal. And that’s before non-financial benefits such as stock options, equity programmes, healthcare and pension contributions are taken into account.
If you’re not already working in the tech sector don’t worry, all is not lost. While there are opportunities for support office staff across communications, human resources and sales, there are also huge advantages in upskilling and switching sectors.
In fact, 38% of workers who recently moved into the tech sector from other industries said they did so to avail of the financial benefits as well as the continued opportunity for progression which can be lacking in other roles. Cloud-based roles especially provide opportunity for progression as well as an extra level of job security as demand for cloud-based platforms and support across all businesses continues to grow.
