About this Report

It’s been a challenging year for organisations across the UK. 2022 began with the struggle to find and hire talent. As the year went on, the energy crisis worsened, national leadership saw significant turnover, and economic policies shifted. Many companies pulled back on scaling teams and even laid off workers they’d hired only months before. 

Despite these obstacles, signs indicate global remote hiring remains confident in Europe, with employers especially interested in experienced talent with specialised skill sets. 

In this report, we’ve specifically studied software engineers on the Hired marketplace to identify the top issues and trends. This includes looking at the most in-demand skills and roles, salaries, and shifts to remote hiring. 

Whether you're looking to hire top talent or you're interested in a new engineering role in the UK, dive into loads of data to help you meet your goals.
