[Podcast] Career Changers and the Rise of Tech Talent

In a recent interview, IHR’s Natasha Preocanin sat down, virtually, with Dom Harvey, CWJobs and Stuart Martin, QA Ltd to discuss the latest CWJobs research that has highlighted career changers and the drive for people to move into the tech sector.

The CWJobs “Turning to Tech” report found that over half of non-tech workers surveyed are planning to change careers and have thought about or actually started to move into tech. With the extent of redundancies and furlough being actioned across the UK, the IT and Tech sector has been seen as a very attractive alternative career due to its resilience throughout Covid-19, but employers need to understand how to attract this talent but most importantly how to reskill existing employees or upskill talent from outside of the industry.

Topics Discussed:

  • The state of play: retraining for roles in tech
  • The training market: changes and case studies
  • Motivations and benefits of a career in tech
  • Aligning skills needed and those available
  • Top tips to attract career changers
  • …and much more!
