Want a new job in Tech in 2023? Start looking now

If you’re looking to make your next career move in 2023, don’t let the recent layoffs at some of the biggest names in big tech spook you; the sector remains robust and ripe with opportunities for tech workers.

Want a new job in Tech in 2023? Start looking now.

There are many reasons why tech continues to thrive in the UK—according to data compiled by Tech Nation for its 2022 People And Skills Report, nearly five million people in the UK work in the digital tech economy, and London ranks as the second best place to live and work globally in tech, based on salary versus cost of living – writes Aoibhinn Mc Bride, Jobbio.

The industry has undoubtedly been bolstered by the increase in venture capital investment into UK-based tech startups and scaleups. Between 2020 and 2021, investment increased by 130% to just under £33.67 billion, and the ripple effect can be seen in the number of current employment opportunities.

So where should you be looking?

In demand jobs

Software developers continue to be the most in demand, but data scientists are also holding their own, along with Java developers, engineers, system architects and full stack developers.

And as the majority of software engineers and developers have a qualification in computer science or engineering and fluency in programming languages like Java, Javascript or Python, pivoting to a new area like cloud computing, cybersecurity, AI or blockchain technology not only guarantees career longevity, but substantial remuneration to boot.

However, it’s not just traditional technical roles that are fuelling the economy: over 36% of tech jobs are in non technical occupations such as sales, finance, legal and HR. Tech roles in other sectors, for example finance, come in at 33%.


A global shortage of 3.4 million cybersecurity workers means 43% of organisations are struggling to find and hire the right talent. And as 94% of large organisations are expected to move away from network-centric security in favour of data-centric security in 2023, there will be even more jobs across the sector.

And while cryptocurrency has had a volatile 12 months, blockchain technology is predicted to become one of the fastest growing sectors this decade. The expected growth of Web3.0 and its reliance on blockchain technology to power its applications means more employment opportunities.

Market Research Future predicts that decentralised finance will become even more prominent in traditional financial institutions and banking, opening up vast scope for employment opportunities.

This new era of Web3 is also ushering in greater interest in the augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) fields as more immersive and interactive methods of communication are on the cusp of exploding into the mainstream. Statista estimates that there will be 1.4 billion mobile AR users worldwide by 2023, up one billion from the 44 million documented in 2019, while GlobalData reports that the AR marketplace should hit $60 billion in 2023, reaching $332.60 billion by 2028.
