The need for quality tech talent has grown substantially in the past FIVE years.
The competition for IT and technology talent is fierce as more organisations are increasing their technology spend.
Continued investment in technology from local businesses is allowing scalable businesses to be created in Newcastle and stay here – providing opportunities for the next generation – as well as opportunities locally for those currently doing the commute to Sydney on a daily basis.
Gone are the days where technology talent had four employment options in Newcastle. Nowadays there are opportunities at enterprise levels companies, product-based software companies, digital agencies, startups and SMBs (who are making increased investments in their technology strategies).
For businesses, there is a definite shortage of qualified technology and digital talent. The Newcastle technology recruitment market would be defined as ‘candidate-short’ meaning employers should be pulling out all stops to attract and keep the best talent available.
For candidates, there are multiple motivators for moving to the area, including a lifestyle change, living closer to the beach and affordability of housing compared to major cities
