The IT industry has seen a huge rise in workers who originate from other sectors seeking work in the digital sector. Figures released by, the freelance recruitment website show there has been a 50 percent increase in people who have been made redundant seeking work in the IT sector.

A large number of the people recruited are working in a technology role or a company’s IT department. Speaking to, confirmed that prior to working for in the digital sector, a large number were not employed in a technological capacity before starting their new role in IT. Just over a third of jobs in the sector were created web programming , web design and IT. Another 11 percent of roles were created in copywriting and editing, while one tenth of the roles were created in Search Engine Optimisation roles and marketing.

There are some disadvantages to look out for if you are seeking copywriting services. A freelance writer has all the required knowledge and skill but may let you down at the last minute if other work comes along, or they are sick. Freelance writers proof read all their own work, which isn’t reliable. Very often we don’t recognise our own errors in grammar and spelling. For higher accuracy and assurance outsource content writing to a professional copywriting agency where they will write and edit for you.
