We may be biased with our HQ being situated in London, but we honestly take for granted all the UK has to offer. More than 1.5 million people are already working within the digital sector, or in digital tech roles across other sectors, while the number of digital tech jobs across the UK has grown at more than twice the rate of non-digital tech sectors. Britain remains one of the most competitive places in the world to start and grow a tech business. We explore why the UK is the ideal destination for you next career move…
Technology is thriving and Britain is leading when it comes to new technology. Did you know more contactless payments are made in the UK than anywhere else in the world? The UK government has pledged to expand the scope of the UK’s digital tech industries, funding Artificial Intelligence, robotics, 5G, smart energy and more. They will broaden their reach across the UK, create new Institutes of Technology, and reinvigorate STEM and digital education to equip young people for the workplaces of the future. It’s no wonder tech giants such as Google, Facebook and Apple all have their HQ in the UK.
Owing to immigration, the UK is renowned for its multicultural society and the British people have a very positive approach towards it. Because of this, you’ll find pockets of communities outside of work but a truly intercultural workplace meaning you’ll fit right in. As a direct result of the varying cultures, you will find a wide selection of restaurants from countless distinct countries. This is a brilliant bonus, especially if like us, you love your food.
Equality in the workplace is covered by the law in the UK. Any discrimination based on gender, disability, marital status, age, race, religious beliefs or sexual orientation is strictly illegal and forbidden.
Not only has the UK guided scientific research and technology around the world; It’s home to the Arts.
