Code Institute’s Jane Gormley shared her advice for employers looking to fill tech skills gaps.

Many companies hiring tech talent are struggling to fill skills gaps as demand for software developers and engineers continues to soar.

However, Code Institute’s Jane Gormley said it’s important that employers take a fresh look at the current capabilities within their organisation and become familiar with where exactly the gaps are.

“What we’re seeing a lot of are [employers] looking at capabilities internally and being able to retrain either entire teams or individuals who have the ability to do some of these tech roles, but maybe just aren’t doing them right now,” she said.

“You do have a lot of influence there, being able to develop that internally, so upskilling, cross-skilling, etc. Obviously, this will also play really well into retention, which is going to be a bit of a challenge for some businesses.”
