The Managing Director of TheITJobBoard.com, Alex Farrell, said that “I was very alarmed to read these statistics – clearly large numbers of UK IT professionals have either made the move overseas at some stage in their career, or this is something they are planning. If this boils down to quality of the jobs on offer in the UK, or low salaries, then companies need to work hard to improve their offering, in order to attract and retain staff. At a time when we are suffering an IT skills shortage, we cannot afford to lose key talent. The onus lies with business managers to develop and nurture their employees and to make the UK’s IT job market an attractive one to work in.”
