Between 2014 and 2017 employment in the digital tech sector increased by 13.2%. Workers in digital tech are also more productive than those in non-digital sectors, by an average of £10,000 per person per annum.
Jobs requiring digital tech skills command higher salaries, on average, £42,578 compared to £32,477 per year, while digitally enabled jobs — those requiring only some engagement with digital tech – bring in £35,227.
Overall, digital tech jobs are good for workers, and good for the UK.
Employer demand is increasing too. Non-digital tech companies are becoming more reliant on digital tech workers, as tech pervades every business and new forms of work evolve.
