IT Apprenticeship company helps fill vacancies in the tech industry across the UK

GK Apprenticeships reveal that Manchester is ranked as the second most tech city in the UK in 2022, the heart of the North West’s hub for tech and IT.

Manchester, the centre of the tech community in the North West, continues in 2023 to attract tech talent for a variety of reasons: amazing career opportunities, access to leading universities and a supportive business culture that hosts strong fintech and SaaS industry connections.

For the 12 months from Aug 2021-Aug 2022, 63,000 tech roles were advertised, with such numbers predicted to rise in 2023.

However, tech companies are facing increasing challenges in filling vital tech vacancies, and in tooling up with the digital skills required to compete. The IT industry is reporting;

  • 69% of employers face IT/Digital skills gaps
  • 78% need a larger pool of digital talent to support productivity demand
  • 63% of employers feel they don’t have the right digital skills

For the tech sector to grow at the rate required to support productivity demand it is essential to facilitate pathways into the sector for talent not yet working in tech. 

GK Apprenticeships, who specialise in IT and Digital Apprenticeships, help businesses who find themselves in the position of needing to fill tech vacancies attract new talent, as well as developing the talent of the existing workforce, helping them gain the digital skills required for the job. Such opportunity is provided through the funded IT/Digital Apprenticeships GK Apprenticeships’ have to offer.

Employers seeking staff can get funding from the government to help pay for apprenticeship training. With government funding of 95%, never has there been a better time to take on an apprentice.
