According to current information from the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK), there are approximately 2,440 IT companies that employ around 11,000 people³. Due to the strong growth in the industry, technologically-oriented companies are desperately looking for IT experts to counteract the shortage of skilled workers⁴. Whether a web developer, software programmer or IT freelancer, each of these professions is a skill sought after by many employees.
The general interest of companies in Frankfurt in investing more in digital systems and basic infrastructures is driving Germany’s networking forward. The consequence of this is that the companies’ recruitment needs will shift and the demand for IT specialists will increase. For this reason, outsourcing IT to freelancers is an interesting alternative for companies to reduce the lack of IT expertise.
The metropolitan region of Frankfurt Rhine-Main shows a comparatively high demand for skilled workers in the IT sector, which is particularly evident among the ECB and the financial elite⁵. A clear sign that qualified IT specialists are in great demand in Frankfurt both now and in the future.
