Tech Success as Cyber Security Sector Grows to £10Bn

London, UK — (SBWIRE) — 03/30/2022 — Recent UK government data has revealed that the British tech sector is a success story, with considerable growth experienced over the past year. That’s especially so for the cyber security sector, which is growing at a substantial rate. Figures from the Department for Digital, Culture, Music and Sport’s Annual Cyber Sector Report reveal that around 1,800 cyber security firms in the UK generated more than £10 billion in revenue across the most recent financial year. Overall, the sector contributed more than £5 billion to the UK economy and the spike in revenues represented a 14% increase on the year before. The 2021 figures are not just impressive for the year but are also a record as they represent the largest increase since the government reporting began in 2018. Employment in the industry followed a similar trajectory, with an increase of 13% and 6,000+ new job opportunities created. As a result, there are now more than 52,000 people working in the UK’s cyber security sector.

This impressive growth has ensured that a cyber security recruiter, such as Glocomms, is kept constantly busy. The firm has experienced a spike in demand over the past year, as organisations seek out an experienced cyber security recruiter with the expertise to provide support to cope with ongoing expansion in tech markets. Glocomms, which was established in 2013, has an extensive practice in this area, which includes not just a history as an established cyber security recruiter, but also being able to provide recruitment support across many other related fields, such as data & analytics, development & engineering and cloud & infrastructure.

Today, there are many roles available via the firm, including Enterprise Account Executive, Sales Engineer and Client Development Manager.

The team at Glocomms said,” A shortage of talent in data means it’s never been more important for hiring managers and HR to understand how to attract, and just as importantly, retain their talent. Compensation, counter offers, working from home policies and extensive benefits package all need to be part of a hiring manager’s strategy to attract talent in 2022.

Competition for sales tech talent has never been tougher, therefore clients need to be wise in understanding who they are competing with. It’s also about staying up-to-date with the latest movers and shakers, and trends. With new tech products always coming to market, we are seeing growth in these hot areas, and talent sometimes make moves into there as opposed to a more traditional business. Clients need to realize they too need embrace and adapt to change.”
