Talent Alpha and Vacancysoft

Winter 2018/19

Despite the current political turbulence, the UK technology landscape remains fast growing and constitutes one of the most significant success stories of the British economy.

The UK’s commitment into creating a digital economy nationally is leading to an explosion of hiring for tech talent, where year on year, IT jobs are up 27.4%. Other key insights include:

  • By region, London’s dominance is without question, in that over 40% of all new IT vacancies created are within the capital.
  • The biggest area of growth is IT security
  • Salaries are surging in the UK, where in some cases businesses are having to offer up to 20% pay rises to retain staff, to avoid them leaving.
