Would you like to be part of an exciting industry in Scotland that's growing quickly? We’re talking about the computing and digital industry, and it's making a lot of money and creating a lot of jobs. In fact, it contributed around £5,997m to the Scottish economy last year!

One in ten of all Scottish vacancies are in the technology sector, and within this sector employment is forecast to grow by 3.2% between 2022-25 compared to a Scotland-wide increase of 1.2%.

Forecasts indicate there will be around 15,600 job openings for tech professionals each year across the whole economy. But here's the problem: there aren't enough people with the right skills to fill these jobs.

And guess what? The jobs in this industry pay really well. The average salary for digital technology professionals is higher than the average Scottish salary and it is continuing to grow.
