Employment Outlook

ICT activities are among the drivers of employment growth in the country today. Not only they are in demand because of new consumption habits and business models, but also because they are among the occupations that allow remote working or telecommuting contracts. Experts at Randstad have recently confirmed that some ICT activities will generate significant employment growth in the coming months and years, especially in the area of new technologies. The development of tools and solutions adapted to the current situation, such as teleworking or entertainment consumption from home, will grow exponentially and require new talent in many Spain-based firms.

In this context, employers are increasingly demanding profiles with knowledge in big data, data analysis, artificial intelligence or machine learning, e-commerce or digital transformation.
