Development & Web
“With industry revenue of £18 billion this year (increasing year on year), modern culture has dictated the huge growth in this sector. It has made considerable progress over the past decade as people have become reliant on electronic or handheld devices in many areas of their lives. News, video and general web access via mobile phones/tablets, in addition to automated client-relationship software and advertising software applications, have placed huge demands on the market for relevant skills and experience”
Lauren Baines, Senior Recruiter
The UK Development & Web market is growing at an exponential rate, with an estimated 2.2 jobs for each experienced candidate, staff retention figures average 23 months and we’ve seen a 45% move towards contracting. There are now over 100,000 software houses operating in the UK; this doesn’t include digital agencies or companies across an array of sectors that now realise the benefits of bringing IT and Development inhouse. Figures have shown that 97.6% of UK business have struggled to hire developers in the past 12 months, so it is hardly surprising to see development sitting as the third highest in demand skill in the UK.
Our e2e (‘Expert 2 Expert’) Development and Web team at VIQU understand that even with this demand our clients will only bring on board the right candidates, because anything other than that could be counterproductive and detrimental to their business.
