Computing/IT

From checking your emails to buying a car, there’s very few things these days that don’t involve using some form of IT. And as this increase in digital technologies continues to grow, demand for these skills is outstripping supply. As a result, many jobs in this sector command very attractive salaries, with those with the most talent capable of earning six figures.

An increasing number of tech start-ups offer exciting and interesting new projects and innovations to work on. Or there are also many opportunities in more traditional businesses who require general IT support. Self-employment is commonplace if you fancy being your own boss and as technologies continue to change on an almost daily basis, you can be sure your career will bring you continual new challenges and development opportunities.
