The FIT ICT Skills Audit was undertaken in response to the unprecedented number of unfilled vacancies in the ICT sector. The findings are significant and provide valuable insights for policy makers, the education and training sector and for ICT sector companies.

However, this demand is global. Germany for example is currently looking for more technologists than Ireland has employed in our entire technology sector.
