IT & Communications

Jobs in Information Technology (IT) and communications have considerable overlap thanks to the reliance of both sectors on the Internet. As such, two once-distinct job categories now share significant similarities, with the skills required in one area often being useful in another.

The broad range of skills required in IT and communications means that there are many different job opportunities available in this sector. IT workers may, for example, be software engineers or developers, or they may work on implementing and monitoring software systems at a variety of businesses.

Alternatively, the skills used may be more generalised; for example, order to work in a modern business environment office workers need to have excellent IT and communications skills.


IT is at the heart of business, commerce and even people’s social lives. There is therefore massive scope for a broad range of careers in the IT jobs sector. These range from top level positions, such as IT Manager for a large, multinational firm, to entry level positions as IT support technicians, systems analysts and software engineers.

The sheer range of jobs on offer, and broad skill set required mean there is enormous scope for any candidate to specialise in this well-paid and highly rewarding field.


The Internet has enhanced the profile of those candidates with communications skills markedly over the past ten years. The advent of social media, online marketing, advertising and other digital platforms has resulted in a greater overlap of skills between this sector and IT.

Like IT jobs, communications specialists can find their skills are applicable over a wide range of job sectors, especially those to do with public relations, media, advertising, marketing and the burgeoning area of social media.
