Recruitment and job ads

Until the internet boom, Computer Weekly was THE jobs paper for IT professionals. In the first edition, J Sainsbury advertised it was looking for an "Assistant Punch Room Supervisor", with salaries up to £1,200 per annum. After 2001, recruitment advertising moved mainly online.


The first issue of Computer Weekly magazine in 1966 was the start of an era in the UK IT industry – the first ever weekly technology publication. When the final print edition of the magazine comes out on 19 April, it will be the start of another exciting era, where Computer Weekly goes fully digital, reflecting the dramatic changes that the internet has brought to not just our business but those of all our readers.
