Patrick - you mentioned the scenario where there are people with tech qualifications who are not able to get work. Any insights into why that is the case? Are there additional skills that they are missing to enter the tech workforce, and/or is there a bias or other issues in the recruitment pathways to fill those roles?

Kate -thanks for the question. Hard to answer in a evidential way. The large companies are well set and well organised. Their pipelines of talent are resourced and established. But the majority of employers are medium and small and find it much harder to invest in digital/tech talent. They don't have the time - they cant pay the salaries., So much of this is about behaviour and education.
