There was over 870,000 technology and digital job vacancies across the UK between January and May 2022. The demand for tech products and services drove this 10 year high for tech jobs.

Tech Jobs in the UK

The data, collated by job search specialist Adzuna and analysed by Tech Nation on behalf of the UK’s Digital Economy Council (DEC), reveal that tech roles now make up 14% of job opportunities in the country, up from 11% just prior to the pandemic.

Hiring remains 43% higher than it was in 2021. The UK tech eco-system is now the third largest in the world, raising £12.4bn in venture capital funding.

The good news is not just confined to London or the South. During the same period, Northwest England had the highest number of open jobs outside London and the Southeast. While the highest average tech salaries outside London and the Southeast are to be found in Scotland.

“The UK is enjoying a golden age in tech. Not only are we one of the best places in the world to start digital businesses, but there are countless opportunities for people to enter the sector and flourish in their career.”
