Podcast Episode 71 – Testing Market Trends

Happy new year! We hope all our listeners have a great 2023. Thank you for being with us on the journey, we hope you all continue to enjoy the podcasts we provide.

In relation to that, in this episode, we review what the Software Testing Market Trends are for 2023. Joining Simon, Chris and David for this episode is long time friend, fan of the podcast and all round testing superstar, Beth Marshall.

Before diving into the main topic, Mr Bantz himself, takes us on a trip down memory lane about brands which we grew up with which we never thought would disappear, from Blockbusters, Cadbury’s Fuse, Woolworths, CDs, LoveFilm, Pop Tarts, Telephone Boxes and even Testing Twitter.

Beth then leads the discussion on the Testing Job market trends, discussing the factors that are impacting peoples decisions to move jobs and what they are looking for. Wellbeing, Hybrid working/WFH options, salary are all factors discussed on what causes people to move. We also touch on the global market now in place with the vast increase in amount of people who apply for roles.

We then talk about the Academies and consultancy options available and how they can change how companies hire and individuals looking for specifics in the roles.

What are your experiences with the market?

We hope you found the discussion useful and would love to hear your feedback.
