Tech Cities Job Watch is the Experis quarterly survey of hiring demand and salaries, developed as a means of tracking the evolving IT opportunities within 10 UK cities that are rapidly developing reputations as technology cluster hubs: London, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne, and in this issue, Leeds.

In the Q3 2015 edition of the report, we continue to focus on five key technology disciplines facing a shortage of skilled IT professionals across the country: IT Security, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data and Web Development, and compare the change in recruitment trends since Q2, 2015.

Report Highlights

The report sets out to provide employers with a barometer of changing recruitment trends within the technology sector. By combining the latest market intelligence with Experis insights and expertise, this report indicates where the exciting new job opportunities are across the UK.
