We need to recruit more apprentices to address the data centre skills shortage, says MigSolv CEO

Matthew Finnegan | Dec. 19, 2014
Apprenticeships needed to address shortfall in 'generalist' staff.

"What you need is someone who has got a general layer of knowledge across all the disciplines: that is what is difficult to find, and is what the industry needs."

Teaching these skills at a young age - such at A-level - is crucial to supporting the data centres of the future, he said, though finding ways to attract young people to infrastructure management roles may be a challenge.

"There is an element of how we can make it sexy, but ultimately none has tried so who knows whether they will take it up. But it is a critical skill, and without it, UK PLC doesn't exist."
