Oliver James Associates and Vacancysoft

April 2017

Key findings include:

  • The number of vacancies in the FinTech sector in England & Wales in the 12-month period ended 28 February 2017 was 47.6% higher than in the previous 12-month period.
  • The market rebounded strongly from a post Brexit vote slump, with vacancies in November, December and January 152%, 81% and 93% higher than those months in 2015/6.
  • One of the results of FinTech we can expect to see will be insurance firms building or acquiring client interfaces of their own.

The April edition of the series of reports co-produced by Vacancysoft and Oliver James Associates takes a closer look at the UK’s FinTech sector. Much has been said about the UK being one of the world’s best FinTech locations, and FinTech being one of the UK’s fastest growing sectors, but how did the Brexit vote affect that? And what effects will actual Brexit have on the sector? What about the famed FinTech unicorns? With talent being more important than capital to FinTech start-ups, which professions, and specialisms, were most sought after? Was there better growth in vacancies over the last 12-month period in bigger or smaller firms? Where were the geographical hotspots? All of that and more is covered by this report.
