A master’s in cloud computing can make your skills relevant and in-demand. Plus, there are plenty of perks to know about…
Things are changing in the world of IT, and the shift from legacy systems to remote computing is apparent. As the digital workforce continues to grow, as will the need for cloud networking. This makes upskilling in cloud skills vital for anyone looking to progress or widen career opportunities.
But what’s so good about working in cloud anyway? And why are so many IT professionals upskilling to remain competitive in this area?
The University of Bolton’s MSc Cloud and Network Security programme is ideal for anyone with a degree in a related subject, as well as those with industry experience. Our course will launch your career in this highly-relevant field, giving you access to these top perks:
Not only will you be able to earn a higher-than-average wage as a cloud computing engineer, manager or security specialist, but you will likely be offered company benefits such as great healthcare, job training, or even subsidised gym membership and lunch.
Right now, the most forward-thinking brands are the ones embracing cloud takeover. This means employee perks will be hot on the list, and it’s these businesses that will be recruiting the most skilled cloud experts to run their operations.
From nap rooms for de-stressing at Hootsuite, free childcare at Microsoft and free food at Google, to egg freezing and fertility support at Spotify, working for global giants can be full of advantages.
It’s likely that smaller companies will follow suit as they compete in the recruitment space to attract new talent. There’s truly never been a time to reskill with a master’s in cloud computing or cloud networking!
Did you know…the average salary for cloud computing jobs is currently an impressive £62,500* in the UK?
Other than the great salary, amazing workplaces and enviable job perks, cloud computing jobs are blessed with ample room for progression. If you’re worried about hitting the glass ceiling in your line of work, cloud can change that.
There’s always a new challenge around the corner, and cloud computing is an area where the technology has advanced more than human capabilities and skillsets. The need for more skilled workers is a pressing issue; put bluntly, we need to catch up and there’s no time to lose.
If you pursue a career in cloud, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for growth and progression, meaning you can boost your earnings over the years, develop your portfolio, and establish yourself as an industry expert.
Company culture is perhaps the biggest perk of developing your skills for cloud computing jobs and cloud networking jobs.
And there’s hot demand for highly talented cloud professionals – including those who have expertise in cloud security – big brands are doing everything they can to drum up excitement.
Millennials want a healthy work/life balance, so this means flexi-time contracts, remote working opportunities, opportunities for travel, and more support from employers when it comes to personal circumstances.
By future-proofing your career with a master’s in cloud computing or networking, you can be in a great position to negotiate your terms. Want to work from home a few days a week? Want to leave an hour early if you come in before 9am? This is the time to set your demands as cloud recruitment is very much a candidate’s game.
