Businesses everywhere are competing to attract the very best tech talent
As demand grows for exceptional technical expertise in the UK and beyond, employers are facing increasing competition to source the brightest minds in the technology sector and retain them.
Businesses everywhere are competing to attract the very best tech talent in the hope they can future-proof their investments in the ever-growing tech sector.
From the tech-startups settling in our region, to the global giants with firm roots already planted in north east soil, extreme talent shortages exist at every level of the technology market – they are all facing an ever-growing challenge to attract, recruit and retain global tech talent.
However, what we are witnessing is a rise of talent entering the UK – talent that is relocating to the North East and making a very big and positive impact to the technology economy right here in our region.
The global talent pool in the North East is strong and there are organisations supporting overseas technology professionals enter the UK on specialist working visas – allowing individuals and businesses to capitalise on the growing tech space in the UK.
This is a very welcome move from tech employers seeking the highest calibre of talent. Supporting homegrown talent is, of course, essential but it’s also a necessity to ensure the technology sector is not subjected to barriers to growth through an inability to access talent pools.
