Self-Employment in ICT looks good

IT Contractors In High Demand

The number of IT specialists moving into self-employment has increased by 48% in five years, up

143,000 in 2009 to 211,000 in 2014, according to research by professional services consultancy

Procorre. According to Procorre, the number of contractors in IT is growing at one of the fastest rates

for any sector and is being driven by rapidly growing business investment in IT, which is underpinned

by several factors including:

• The explosion of the ‘app economy’, estimated to be worth £4bn to the UK economy this year

but expected by some to rise to £31bn by 2025.

• The growth of mobile commerce (transactions via mobile devices) means that businesses are

investing in their web presence and e-commerce system to make them compatible with mobile


• Businesses are investing in cloud computing for data storage and software to offer their

employees greater flexibility and boost the productivity of a business

Youth Unemployment - the facts

Youth unemployment rises in December

There are worrying signs that the labour market position of young people has worsened in the last

quarter. The number of young people not in employment, full-time education or training has risen by

31,000 in the quarter. Youth (ILO) unemployment was down very slightly in the quarter, but rose by

17,000 between September and October. This is potentially a worrying reversal of the improving

trends seen for young people between mid-2013 and mid-2014."
