In recent months, businesses looking to build a strong workforce in the technology field are struggling to attract quality candidates to their technology vacancies. Here at Jonathan Rhys Recruitment, we believe the reasons for this:

  1. A skills shortage stemming from rapidly evolving technology and digitalisation. Emerging fields, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, cybersecurity, blockchain, and data science require specialist skills, up-to-date knowledge and ongoing training to keep up with an ever-evolving industry.
  2. There is a disconnect between the skills taught in traditional education systems and the demands of the rapidly changing technology job market. Many struggle to keep up with the latest advancements in technology and industry practices, leading to graduates with outdated skill sets. Additionally, the lack of relevant training and upskilling opportunities for existing professionals contributes to the skills gap.

Businesses must invest more time and money in to adequate training programs to help their workforce develop the skills they need to succeed in these fields. Offering training and development opportunities in Technology will also help businesses remain competitive in the job market, and attract better quality candidates. But businesses need not tackle the hiring process alone.
