We look at the most in demand programming languages and development trends, as well as providing some of our market insights, which are taken from a interviews with a large number of tech leaders and Developers from across the country.

We will look at the war for talent when recruiting into your vacant Development roles, exploring how you can make the speed to hire faster and improve interview process, as well as providing real life examples where we’ve seen this in action. We will also explore the pros and cons of using a technical test and how you could asses technical ability without one.

Finally, we will provide you with some data and insight around salaries, benefits, and working set up being offered in our region and across the country by your competitors, for both permanent and contract opportunities from Junior Developers to management level positions. We will also explore ideas of how you can set your job opportunity and company apart from others to secure the best talent.
