In general, Hays said the most sought-after jobs “aren’t necessarily those with hard skills related to technology knowledge, but those that can oversee projects and provide insights.”
“Organisations need people who will take responsibility for running projects and working closely with all those involved. While other jobs in our top ten list require hard skills, these roles revolve around soft skills and seeing the bigger picture of the overall strategy,” James Milligan, Hays Global Head of Technology Solutions, commented.
