Depending on the role you apply for the skills you need will vary. For example, a purely technical role will require a candidate to have the necessary knowledge of programming code such as Java, HTML or CCS. Although anyone applying for a role in a technology firm will be required to demonstrate some good understanding of what the technology does, or how it work – at least in principal – or demonstrate they have the ability to learn, understand and process these ideas, to help them in their role in the future. As such good mathematics and science grades at GCSE and A-Level wouldn’t go amiss, while a more science-inclined university degree could be viewed more favourable than an arts degree.
