Information Technology

What's happening locally




  • There are plenty of employers in Gloucestershire whose staff use IT skills on a daily basis. The public sector (e.g. Gloucestershire Council and Cheltenham Borough Council) is traditionally a large employer of such workers. Competition for such jobs is strong, however

  • Private sector employers of admin workers (who often require good knowledge of Microsoft Office, especially Word and Excel) include insurance and travel/tour companies. Some, especially those involved with finance, will also employ IT professionals.

  • Computer shops, which may require staff with a technical background, tend to be based in town centres

  • Technical employers (e.g. those connected to engineering) often require high level IT skills 

  • Cirencester is a 'hotspot' for computer/IT companies

  • According to the National STEM Centre (science, technology, engineering and maths), IT skills are one of the shortage skills highlighted by employers in the South West
