4 UK tech jobs to consider this week

If you’re looking to move on to narrow the pay gap, take on more responsibility or looking for more flexibility, Jobbio has picked out some top tech jobs this week

International Women’s Day may have taken place on Friday 8th March, but all through this month, you can expect to see greater emphasis placed on women in the workplace, leadership and more.

In tech, women find that there are significant issues around being taken seriously, a lack of equal pay, as well as a dearth of female role models to emulate and be inspired by. That’s according to Women in Tech, and as of this year, the gender pay gap is 14.3 per cent, and looks set to take at least another 20 years to close.

For Kirsty Carotti, a software engineer at the regulatory technology firm REGnosys, role models matter. “For young girls, seeing a woman in a STEM profession talk about their career path and current role can be so inspiring. I think one of the most positive outcomes of social media is the accessibility to STEM role models across all diversities and professions.”

Carlotti is also the vice-chair of the WISE young professional board, a social enterprise that aims to achieve gender equality within industry, and raise awareness of STEM subjects and careers amongst younger women through championing role models.

As a result, she believes that early support is necessary to encourage girls to do STEM subjects. “We need to ensure that the availability of resources is more level across different school districts,” she says.

The government has an important role to play too. “There is also an onus on the government to update policies including equalising maternity and paternity leave to reduce the pressure for one person to take up the primary caring responsibilities. Companies are already implementing policies with much success, so a push for legal reform is needed.”

No matter where you are within the industry, a new role may be on your horizon this year. If you’re looking to move on to narrow the pay gap, take on more responsibility, or achieve greater workplace flexibility, then the Information Age job board is a good place to start.

It contains thousands of roles all across the UK, like the four vacancies below.
