40% of UK IT professionals have spent time out of work in the last 5 years

Here are the final stats from the survey I have been presenting recently.

A reader set up the survey to help shed light on the debate surrounding the UK IT skills shortage. There was a healthy 170 respondents.

This post looks at how long the respondents have spent out of work in the last 5 years.

The questionnaire asked: How many months have you spent out of work in the last 5 years?

The survey said:

But that still leaves a significant 40% that have spent time out of work and almost 10% that have been out of work for over a year.

It is important to realise we have not differentiated between in-house IT staff and contractors.
