Ep 148: The Market For Digital Skills


Digital transformation is something affecting the vast majority of businesses and to compete effectively employers need to attract, develop and retain people with the right digital skills. But what digital skills are most in demand and should recruiters be looking for people who already have them or for people with the potential and ability to learn them?

To give some cutting-edge insight into this topic, my guest this week is Brian Hickey, European MD of Udacity. Udacity partners with industry-leading companies to develop “Nano Degrees” for in-demand digital skills.

In the interview we discuss –

• What is driving the market for digital skills

• Which digital skills are most in demand and how demand is changing

• Why not all digital skills are technical skills

• How is technology changing the way we learn

Brian also shares his thoughts on whether it the responsibility of the employer to train employees or the employee’s responsibility to keep their skills up to date
