Government needs to do help tech firms attract IT talent

ServicedofficeBENews800695483

The government needs to do more to make new businesses operating in services offices and other buildings a more attractive prospect for IT talent, according to Songkick.

Ian Hogarth, chief executive officer of the music website, explained that, in particular, software engineers were the “lifeblood of tech start ups”.

However, it was often the case that smaller technology firms often lost on engineering graduates to other industries.

Mr Hogarth said: “We’d like to see the government promote start-ups as a stable, legitimate and exciting option for graduating software engineers.

“Despite having some of the world’s best engineering institutions here in the UK, the default choice for top engineering graduates is to join a bank or management consultancy.”

The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development this week called on the government to resist pressure to exempt micro-businesses and start-ups from the right to request flexible working.

Songkick was set up four years ago to help people find out when their favourite bands are playing and share their live music experiences in an online community.
