Tech recruiter Harvey Nash reports that new priorities for many businesses have changed the type of tech skills most in demand. Cybersecurity, enterprise architecture, technical architecture, organizational change, and cloud skills are at the top of the list. That marks a change from last year, when big data and analytics, followed by cybersecurity, enterprise architecture, technical architecture, and DevOps were most in demand.

The tech sector has been somewhat insulated from the pandemic as businesses shift to remote working. "As a result, we have only seen the tech recruitment market slow for permanent positions, but even here, things are starting to pick-up again — particularly for software developers, helpdesk advisors, cloud architects and cybersecurity specialists," says Bev White, chief executive of Harvey Nash.
