The Telecoms Skills Shortage

Of the many options you may consider the telecoms industry should definitely be on your short list. It is a global industry that is experiencing unprecedented customer demands and consequential huge amounts of investment. The future is indeed very bright when you consider the following.

The government Department for Business Innovation and Skills submitted a report in January 2016 on Digital Skills for the Economy which identified that:

  • more than half a million new IT and telecoms professionals will be needed in the next five years, working across all sectors of the economy
  • nine of out ten firms suffering IT and telecoms-related skills shortages are experiencing delays in the development of new products or services.
  • More than one-third of companies trying to recruit IT and telecoms professionals report difficulties in attracting applicants with the right skills, knowledge and qualifications.
