Large Labour shortage Hits Hungary's IT sector

Vilmos Both, an advisor to the Association of Information Technology Companies, said the shortage of 22,000 professionals in the years 2010-20 has doubled.
The Hungarian education system is unable to meet this kind of demand, he added.
He said the majority of companies are looking for highly qualified IT engineers, but the shortage can also be identified in simpler IT jobs, at the level of system administrators, programmers and testers.
The other big risk, Both added, is that more and more IT professionals realise that they can work from home, as “digital nomads”, so the higher income available abroad tempts many into a kind of “virtual emigration”.
