The Tech Sector is the Most Recession-Proof

A recent study has found that the most recession-proof jobs since 2002 have been in the tech sector, with the total wage bill having risen 82% to £32bn since 2013.

According to analysis of the latest official government stats, 400,000 more people went into full-time employment between 2002 and 2014.

The least recession-proof job is said to be that of the travel agent where the aggregate wage bill fell by 56% over the same period to £402m.

The survey found that this was due to technological change with customers moving to book their holiday online.

CEO of Randstand, Mark Bull, said: "While jobs in IT infrastructure and networks may have declined - and some jobs have been outsourced beyond our borders - other areas, such as .net and ecommerce mobile programming, have boomed."
