As one of the leading tech hubs in the world, London is known for its diversity, innovation and stream of successful startups that reside in the capital.
London’s ubiquitous influence continues to attract the best talent from not only European cities but also across the globe, especially within the tech industry. Year after year it also continues to attract high investment in venture capital compared to other European cities, regardless of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit.
From rising startups to well-established enterprises, tech professionals choose to live and work in London for the opportunities that this dynamic city offers. However, the increase in opportunities that come with the rise of startups has resulted in a shortage of talent, especially in technical focused roles such as web developers and data scientists.
This has led to employers offering higher-than-usual salaries and improved employee packages in a bid to attract and retain the best talent. In an increasingly competitive sector, companies that focus on culture and employee retention are those that will succeed, especially when it comes to talent acquisition.
