It is well known there is a digital skills shortage – and this is as acute in Jersey as it is anywhere – so the opportunities for an exciting career have never been greater. Our digital industry is dynamic and innovative. The Jersey government is supporting its growth as the island diversifies its economy and future-proofs itself, and we have both home-grown entrepreneurs and businesses re-locating, all of whom want to employ local people. It means there are a wide range of career options available from coders and data analysts to project managers, game and web developers and digital marketeers.
The latest statistics show a 28% growth in digital sector employment since 2010. That compares to just 7% in the island generally. Now really is a great time to be looking at joining the industry, whether you are a school leaver, University graduate or career changer.
