The year ahead – Shift F5’s Predictions for 2022

2021 has been a year of changing priorities and new starts for many, and as we enter 2022 there are some big topics being discussed in boardrooms around the country.

And if you’ve been hiring for tech roles in the past few months you’ll have seen a shortage across the most in-demand skillsets and job titles.

With the Tech industry attracting circa £13.5bn investment through 2021, there is a significant knock on effect of salary increases and candidates’ expectations, all while breathing new life into many areas of the economy.

Our 5 most in demand job titles for 2022

  • Product Managers
  • CTOs
  • Full Stack / Web Developers
  • Devops / Cloud Engineers
  • Data Science & Analytics
