As a specialist recruitment firm based in Cardiff, we’re proud to be immersed in the prosperous and ever-growing Welsh tech scene. Last year, more than 30,000 businesses in the sector brought in £8 billion to our economy.

Technology in the UK as a whole continues to expand faster than the rest of the overall economy, creating a wealth of job opportunities from Perth to Penzance and everywhere in between. In 2018, the number of tech start-ups in the UK hit an all-time high with success set to continue into the new year.
The UK tech sector is suffering from a skills gap that is only set to continue widening in 2019. How do we go about attracting the right talent and reversing the trend?
