There has been a rise in British workers looking for careers that make use of advanced digital technologies, according to new data.
Job site Indeed reports a large increase in users carrying out job searches related to augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) vacancies.
Such searches have increased by 256 per cent over the past two years, while there has been a 605 per cent rise in related job postings in the same period.
Indeed’s UK managing director, Bill Richards, said: “Use of augmented reality in the workplace has exploded and it’s beginning to transform the way we work.
“As its commercial application grows in tandem with mobile and tablet use, we expect to see more related job opportunities across numerous industries in the UK over the next five to ten years.”
He added the success of Pokemon Go could also play a key role in boosting the industry as the day-to-day use of AR and VR becomes commonplace and therefore companies should start looking now to recruit workers with the best skills.
