Employers looking for tech candidates with hybrid skills

(2 minutes to read)

Robert Half: ‘Technology initiatives have been at the heart of many businesses’ pandemic recovery efforts and underpin their plans for future growth’.

Online consumer behaviour and the rise in home working is fuelling hiring for those in the technology sector – particularly for multi-skilled professionals.

This is according to Robert Half’s latest 2022 Salary Guide, which also found that 41% of tech leaders believe changing behaviours are inspiring business confidence. This has resulted in 34% saying they will be looking to hire new positions in 2022.

Interestingly, the skills that are the most difficult to find amongst job candidates for permanent roles are adaptability and problem solving.

The research shows that both are viewed as essential for tech roles – the pace of new development means skills and knowledge can quickly become outdated, so those able to learn and adapt quickly are extremely valuable to employers.

Phil Boden, Senior Manager at Robert Half, said, “Technology initiatives have been at the heart of many businesses’ pandemic recovery efforts and underpin their plans for future growth, but they are also keen to protect themselves financially by balancing their budgets. As technology is always advancing, candidates who can adapt and evolve their skills over time are also highly desirable to businesses.

“Across the board, the level of demand is intense and candidates that meet businesses’ heightened requirements for soft and technical skills are in short supply, so companies should be prepared to compete.”

Why Dolan Accountancy?

Dolan Accountancy was set up by Simon J Dolan, the man behind the well-known brand SJD Accountancy. With over 25 years experience in the contracting marketing, Dolan Accountancy has the heritage, reputation and credibility you can trust. Working closely with our sister company, Contractor Umbrella, it means we can offer one low cost, fixed fee package at £95 + VAT per month. This gives you the flexibility of using both our Limited Company Accountancy Services and our award winning Umbrella Service, for one inclusive cost. We don’t believe in tiered packages or hidden extra fees, instead we aim to give you everything you need, including:

  • Free Company Formation – This is where it all begins. Once you have decided on an available name, we will form your company free of charge (if using our accountancy services) and it will be ready for you to use in as little as three hours.
  • Free use of Contractor Umbrella – With changes in Public Sector IR35 Legislation we understand that sometimes you are required to contract via an umbrella company. We will keep your limited company ticking over, while you work margin free via our sister company, Contractor Umbrella.
  • A Dedicated Accountant – Your accountant will be there for any company or personal tax advice that you require. We will never outsource work, even to internal teams.
  • Free Access to FreeAgent – The founder behind the multi award winning FreeAgent platform was one of Simon’s first clients, therefore it only seems fitting that we offer all of our clients access to FreeAgent, free of charge.
  • Free Business Banking – We have decided to waive our commission so our clients can use Tide free of charge for the first year.
  • Unlimited IR35 Status Reviews – We will review all of your contracts for IR35 purposes and provide you with our professional opinion as to its status.
