The IT sector continues to grow across almost every discipline and industry, which is creating more opportunities for businesses and professionals alike. However, with increased hiring and a dwindling talent pool, finding the right candidate remains the biggest challenge facing IT hiring managers in the year ahead – and there are no signs of this abating.
This talent shortage is having a profound impact on businesses, many whose growth ambitions rely on the availability of IT talent to contribute to transformation and digitalisation projects. Those talented individuals with the relevant skill set to help strategically manoeuvre organisations onto more innovative technology systems are in high demand. Indeed, the demand for IT, tech and digital talent continues to grow across most industries as systems and software tools become better able to process data and enable better business decision making. Competition to attract the very best is fierce with many leading employers creating increasingly competitive salary and compensation packages to attract and retain top IT talent.

Top candidates are looking for:
- Attractive bonus structures
