“Scotland, like the wider United Kingdom, has an imbalance between the growing demand for technology professionals and the limited number of graduates leaving universities and colleges with technology skills, as demonstrated by the Scottish Government’s creation of CodeClan digital academy in an effort to create 11,000 new digital and IT workers annually to meet demand in the sector.

Scott Logic is very much aware of the need for talented technologists and in Scotland, we spend a lot of time recruiting specialists, some of whom volunteered at the Summer Hack event.
