By way of introducing the report, here is a snippet of the market commentary from the Wireless Network Infrastructure section
Wireless Network Infrastructure in the UK will continue to remain a busy area for recruitment activity in 2022 and possibly beyond. With 5G rollouts gathering pace, we are seeing the market become busier and we expect this to increase over the coming months, and years, especially with the UK Government’s ambition for the majority of the population to have access to a 5G signal by 2027; and the need for operators to swap out Chinese vendor equipment. The evolution from 4G to 5G, has meant that telco professionals have had to adapt and grow their skillsets alongside it. We are seeing a strong demand for roles that require customer management skills; roles such as Technical Project Manager, Rollout Implementation Manager, and Solution Architect, remain in high volume with a competitive demand for talent.
