What is the digital sector?

The digital sector encompasses businesses which have a desire to change the world through the application of strategic thinking around people’s needs, and the creation of digital products and services to address those needs.

Like the industrial revolution that came before it, the digital revolution is changing life as we know it. We engage with digital from the moment we wake up to when we fall asleep. Digital gets us from A to B, connects us with our colleagues and friends, and enables us to work and create new things.

Digital is one of the fastest growing sectors for new job creation - make Flipside your first step to a bright future in digital product design.
