Key take-aways:

While vacancy activity has increased across the
south over the course of the last year, what is interesting is how the region has slowed relatively
to others.

Where the South has been highly effective in job creation has been in the technology and high tech industries, with key hubs located all around London.

By industry, TMT businesses remain the largest constituent block. With vacancies up over 20% compared to last year so far, this is one of the faster growing areas.
