Other key trends emerging include:

– Hiring in Banking for front and middle office roles is now in decline, arguably as a result of Brexit, although fintech does have a role to play in this.
– With the Technology sector growing 2.6 times faster than the rest of the economy, it is not surprising that TMT is now the largest industry in terms of professional vacancies.
– The charity sector is also one of the fastest growing in the UK. A sign of increased professionalization within the sector or a function of a greater need due to austerity?

Key take-aways:

A significant increase in the number of professional vacancies, with a surge in activity happening towards the end of the year.

Whilst Greater London remains the stronghold for jobs in the UK, the biggest increase year on year was seen in the North East of England, could we finally be seeing the government investment in the Northern Powerhouse paying off?

IT Report – 2017 Year In Review

Key issues to reflect on include:

Theresa May recently described the technology sector as a “great British success story,” where the growth rate of IT jobs has been more than double that of others since 2011.

The UK has long been the primary beneficiary in Europe when it comes to private equity and venture capital investment, where 2017 was a record year for investment, with growth in the sector has been seen nationwide.

Another emerging trend is how IT vacancies are being created fastest outside of technology companies, with banking specifically recruiting the most aggressively.
