    Latest figures from the Department for Work and Pensions show the sector is one of the main drivers for growth, and responsible for over 1.65m jobs across the country.

    It's thought to be down to demand for the internet, wireless cloud technologies and mobile phones.

    Quote Message: We had record-breaking employment levels across Britain last year, and since 2010 the number of people working in Yorkshire & the Humber has gone up by 146,000. During that period 88,000 new jobs have been created in the IT sector, and it’s easy to see why those kind of skills are in such popular demand by employers. The world’s gone digital, and we’re all having to adapt to that." from Esther McVey Work and Pensions Secretary
