How will technology change your job in the next 5 years?


Rapid advancements in technology are making the world a smaller place; we are more connected than ever before and the world of business has changed radically in a very short time! There are roles that exist today which 10 years ago no one had even heard of - Social Media Manager, Cloud Computing Specialist, App Developer, to name a few.

Now the UK is experiencing a technology and digital skills crisis.

How does this affect me?‚Äč

This skills shortage has an effect on everyone in the UK workforce.

No matter what your job role is, it's very likely that you will use technology in some way during your day. The need for technology and digital skills is only going to grow...

Mortimer Spinks and Computer Weekly Technology & Digital Skills Survey 2017.

We are conducting research to help understand how to develop a technology and digital workforce that is truly future proof. With this research, we aim to:

  • Advise the current and future workforce to become a competitively enabled digital and technical nation.
  • Advise people in non-tech roles about the skills needed to pursue a career in technology and digital.
  • Advise UK organisations and employers how to support and develop a future technology and digital workforce.
  • Advise parents, schools and government on how to enable the future workforce with the necessary skills for a career in the technology and digital industry.

The technology & digital industry and beyond...

We will be looking for insights from the following groups of people.
