The technology sector is performing particularly well despite the difficult economic climate, according to a Barclays' survey, which shows that 63 percent of tech firms will create jobs this year.
While this figure is down on last year's figures, when 78 percent of tech firms were recruiting, the sector is still looking strong when compared to other UK industries.
The national cross sector average, revealed by Barclays, showed that only 56 percent of all companies plan to create new jobs this year, which is little change from last year's 58 percent of companies.
The Barclays Job Creation Survey 2013 questioned over 700 UK businesses about their employment plans for this year.
The research showed that 57 percent of the technology businesses planned to create senior management roles, a 42 percent increase on last year's senior management hiring in the technology sector, and a figure 34 percent higher than the national cross sector average.
"Many businesses in this fast-growing sector are rapidly reinventing and broadening their reach as they add new capabilities to their offerings," said Barclays' Technology, Media and Telecoms team managing director Sean Duffy.
"The significant increase in top level jobs, higher than any other sector, demonstrates how serious these businesses are about achieving their ambitious growth plans."
While the Barclays survey spelled mostly good news for the tech sector and 69 percent of the businesses questioned said they were not expecting to cut jobs this year, this percentage is actually below the national average of 79 percent.
The fact that the technology sector plans to hire more staff than the average business, but also cut more staff, shows the industry is undergoing a period of change, which may bring instability to some employees.
