There are now more than 1.64 million digital technology jobs in the UK and not just in the capital: 74 per cent of the UK’s digital technology businesses are based outside of London!
Tech businesses are growing: their annual income has increased by 15% in just 5 years to £170bn -and they’re growing more than twice as fast as the non-digital sector too.
A role in tech doesn’t mean coding. It doesn’t mean sitting in silence staring at the computer all day. Tech roles encompass everything from data analysis and visualisation to software project management, product marketing, game design, and social media. You could work in tech for a start-up - or for a non-profit, a retail brand or an agency. The variety and potential is enormous.
