The economic climate in the UK has been tough since 2008, with most industries suffering under the strain of the recession. This has led to a wage freeze or reduction across several sectors, however, the IT sector continues to grow and still has increasing wages.

Those with technology skills are in high demand and in short supply, with a massive skills shortage continuing to grow in the UK in 2016. Since January thousands of positions have been filled in a variety of job roles, some of these roles did not even exist as close as 10 years ago.
