Can you think of any business that doesn’t have a website? Even SMEs and one-man bands have websites these days so there is a lot of potential when it comes to IT opportunities. Many businesses entrust other companies to design and build a website for them as they do not have the skills to do it themselves. If you are a dab hand at creative design, you might be well suited to becoming a website designer. You will be able to lay out a website so it is easy to use, as well as visually appealing; you will also consider how it will be used on a mobile device. Once this is complete, you will work with the development team to get it up and running. It all becomes very worthwhile when you see your design live on the internet.
Now that so many people use the internet for their everyday needs, there needs to be a tighter level of security so data doesn’t get stolen or lost. The public trust the web for everything from shopping to banking, so having the right level of trust is important. You could join a bank or retailer to help with their programming with a view on the security of the site. It is an important role that helps to maintain the integrity of the company, as any data breaches can be very bad publicity. You will find these types of roles advertised from brands themselves as well as specialist IT job sites.
