|Respondents by Age|
In Finland, IT professionals are on average the oldest in Europe with an average of 45 years old. The average age of a European IT professional is 41. More respondents also belonged to the over 50 category than in the rest of Europe. A clear need for more young IT professional talent in Finland emerges from these findings.
More than half of professionals did however, have an IT-focused education.
The majority of the IT profiles work in the IT supply side, in particular Database Administrator, IT Systems Analyst, IT Trainer, IT Systems Architect and IT Sales & Marketing Consultant (all with a rate of 60% or more).
