Tech talent shortage: Why legacy developers are harder to find than new tech skills

There’s more tech talent in the UK (and beyond!) than ever before, yet there’s undoubtedly also more work available. Recent findings from the Office for National Statistics found that there are 98,000 vacancies for ‘professional scientific and technical roles’, up 28.2% on the previous three months. However, with only so many education institutes training individuals in these roles, the tech talent shortage isn’t slowing down. In fact, the skills needed across the industry are growing with each year.
