Careers
in Digital

Jersey has a digital skills gap, but this is not just a Jersey issue – it’s global. The European Union estimates there will be 500,000 unfilled vacancies for ICT professionals by 2020. The UK government estimates their skills gap is costing the UK £63 billion a year in lost revenues.

Jersey has a digital skills gap, but this is not just a Jersey issue – it’s global. The European Union estimates there will be 500,000 unfilled vacancies for ICT professionals by 2020. The UK government estimates their skills gap is costing the UK £63 billion a year in lost revenues.

When we talk digital skills we are not just meaning coders or computer programmers, the digital industry is as varied as it is dynamic. There really is a role for everyone, whether you are artistic, wordy or numbers oriented, male, female, school leaver or job changer.

This booklet seeks to highlight some of the varied digital careers in Jersey and the educational and apprenticeship options on offer. Our industry is growing fast. We’ve seen a 20% increase in digital sector employment since 2013 and that pace of growth is increasing. As some of the traditional roles in finance (our main employer) and other industries are lost to automation and artificial intelligence, it is very important that we all keep our digital skills updated and consider learning new ones.

You don’t have to be Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, you don’t need to have the exact skills to match a role, what you do need is a willingness to learn and an enthusiasm to take your place in the exciting and dynamic digital industry.
