‘App Economy’ leads to boom in mobile specialist jobs

The ‘app economy’, currently accounting for 40,000 UK mobile technology jobs has led to increasing demand for mobile specialists. According to Michael Nuciforo, the former head of mobile banking at RBS, those skills most sought after are:

‘Agile delivery practitioners, payment and contactless experts, data miners, user experience design specialists, operations and support with growth predicted in the Microsoft Windows, IM and possibly in BlackBerry arenas, and “developers developers developers”.’

Recruiters and those running recruitment businesses should be positioning themselves to target talent to fill mobile roles. The ‘start-up demographic’ of young, tech-savvy professionals embracing mobile skills will be the primary target of any such recruitment drives, it is predicted.
