By way of introducing the report, here is a snippet of the market commentary from the Cloud, Edge & Network Virtualization section.
There has been a significant increase in the demand for NFV engineers due to more Cloud Core projects happening both in the UK and in other parts of Northern Europe, and it’s expected that this recruitment trend will continue in the coming months. However, there is a shortage of talent in this area and many companies are now searching globally to engage with contractors who can provide remote services. This recruitment strategy has increased significantly following the enforced adoption o f remote working on a much wider scale during the pandemic. Many telco companies realised how successful remote working is, often enabling them to have access to better talent and with reduced costs. We have seen a high demand for the following roles: Technical Project Managers, Solution Architects, Network Test and Integration Engineers
