Tax and accounting software developer Digita is claiming that the shortage of skilled and experienced software engineers is slowing the company’s plans for rapid growth.

The award winning Exmouth based business became part of the multi-national Thomson Reuters plc earlier this year unveiling plans for growth and investment in new product development but has yet to find enough experienced software developers to support the company’s ambitions.

Digita managing director, Jerry Rihll said:

"Becoming part of Thomson Reuters has given us a massive boost allowing us to take a long term view of our development strategy and access to a vast worldwide knowledge reservoir.

"We know we have the best products in the market and some of the very best development talent in the sector. We have also seen a surge in recruitment including opening a London sales office."

"However, to achieve further growth through product development we need more locally and regionally based engineers with the right skill sets and experience and so we are redoubling our efforts to attract them."

One such initiative will be an in-house ‘Job Fayre’ where potential candidates can learn more about our business and the career development opportunities without a formal interview.

Jerry Rihll added:

"This job fayre gives us a chance to share the unparalleled opportunities for career development within the South West."

In addition to software engineers, Digita are looking for recruits in client support, project management and finance. Details of the Digita Job Fayre are available by visiting
