In remarks this morning to mark the celebration of UK Tech City’s third anniversary, the Prime Minister officially announced the success that the hub has brought to the UK and London. In the Tech City report titled “Tech Powers the London Economy”, CareerBuilder and EMSI data was the chief data source of the jobs and company growth information. We are pleased to be part of this exciting area but also to provide the data that Tech City used.
According to EMSI data, 27% of all job growth in London comes from the tech/digital sector. When you consider some of the most in demand roles today – software professionals, IT strategy and planning professionals and IT user support technicians – all are expected to grow significantly by 2016 despite already having a shortage of workers. Employment in the tech/digital sector in London grew by 16.6% against an overall growth rate of 0.3% across Great Britain. Exciting news for job creation and the British tech sector!
