Comments Richard Nott, website director, CWJobs: “As investment in technology firms increases, there is less need for professionals to be based in the capital city, giving professionals the opportunity to work across many different regions. 

 This is good news for the industry and for the prospects of IT Apprentices or indeed anyone entering the field of technical IT  there  may no longer need to consider re-locating to get the best jobs.

As IT’s position as an inherently ‘networked industry’ grows.


Areas of particular growth include .net technology however networking and IT support still provide a high proportion of all jobs
