Headhunter comment: Science and Technology to lead hiring boom in 2017

Posted By 

Lloyd Wahed, Managing Director at Athelstan, the data analytics talent network, comments on the CBI’s job market prediction showing that technology and science will lead 2017’s hiring boom.

“The robustness of Britain’s digital communities has surprised many following the referendum. The CBI’s job market predictions reflect the demand that we’re seeing in our hiring network, with requests for highly-skilled digital and data-science roles particularly high. We expect that supply will begin to match demand from employers next year, however, as jobseekers look to take advantage of wages rising above inflation.

“For this growth to continue, firms must be able to attract the best talent from around the world. Looking ahead, it remains to be seen whether legislative obstacles for foreign employees will ensure Britain remains the digital capital of Europe.”
