When asked on the issue of hiring qualified staff, only 12 per cent of those responsible for hiring technology related positions believed that there were ample or surplus candidates adequately skilled for the jobs on offer. This however is in stark contrast to the optimism of 82 per cent of current technology students and graduates, who remain positive with regard to employment prospects despite employers’ belief that skills and experience are lacking.

The Gap Years study surveyed 100 UK-based IT leaders and contrasted opinions against a further 200 technology students and graduates to aggregate their thoughts on the issues affecting the current IT job market in the UK.
