High demand for tech skills
It’s no surprise that the world of tech has gone through a vast amount of change since the pandemic. For people working in the industry, 2020 and 2021 was more about meeting demand than staying afloat. As remote work puts more pressure on companies to digitize, the demand for roles in IT will be even greater in 2022. Companies will be competing to find people with specialized skills in IT; with jobs in cyber security, compliance, risk, fraud and payments highly sought after. Check out our tech roles.
Expect an increase in incentives
We’re seeing it more and more, we find ourselves in a candidate driven market. Today’s trends have determined that it’s more about the companies selling to the candidates than the other way around. The impact of this culture shift is directly seen in stronger employer branding that advertises a ‘remote first’ or ‘digital nomad lifestyle’. Compensation is no longer the main driver when it comes to incentives. Read about our 4 day work-week.
