IT and technology

The IT and technology sector spans all industries, with a wide range of different technical and business job roles available. Major employers in this sector include IT services and technology solutions providers, software development houses and technology consultancies. Many roles can also be found in the public sector, in banks, professional services and financial organisations, in retail and in engineering firms, to name a few.

Within this top ten, there is arguably a move away from hardware manufacturers; with the exception of Apple and Siemens, the top employers are mostly software/services providers or retailers. Accenture is an interesting inclusion in that it's a professional services firm, as opposed to a distinct technology company.
