At JobisJob, we are now looking in depth into the health of the IT-Telecomm sector workforce in the UK, corresponding to the 1st quarter of 2017. The labour market trend in the IT sector is being approached from two perspectives:
- Behaviour of the applicant for employment. We have analysed the job applicant’s interest in this area through their search behaviour.
- Labour supply of the sector. To delve into the trends of the job offers in the IT sector, we have used Job Market Insights, our state-of-the-art Big Data tool that offers a personalised, accurate and cross-cutting analysis of the UK labour market.
Nowadays the importance of digital skills is beyond all possible doubt. Since computer science began surrounding us, the number of these skills required by companies has increased dramatically. Recruiters use social media to look for candidates and people search jobs on job boards. Digital Networking has overcome traditional methods and NGO’s use it to promote their activity. Digitalization has changed every single aspect of our lives.

We interviewed Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of the Group of the European Youth for Change (GEYC) and asked him about his work helping young people develop their digital skills.
