At the centre of everything

The West Midlands was named the UK’s fastest-growing tech hub in 2021, and as the region’s largest city, Birmingham is leading this development. Although its history is firmly rooted in manufacturing, the city is fast becoming one of the nation’s foremost IT areas thanks to its central location and easy transport links.

Mayor and WMCA head Andy Street is also a key player in Birmingham’s tech revolution - he’s a major endorser of Birmingham Tech Week, and regularly highlights the important role that IT jobs in Birmingham play in both the local and national economies. In 2022, Andy officially opened The Greater Birmingham and Solihull Institute of Technology Hub, home to Europe’s largest Cyber-Physical Manufacturing rig.

“Digital is vital to the continued success of the West Midlands economy because it is the golden thread across all the industries."
Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands

The city also benefits from its proximity to neighbouring tech hotspots - Coventry’s Serious Games Institute is just half an hour away, and Leamington Spa isn’t much further. Also known as ‘Silicon Spa’, it’s home to 10% of the UK’s gaming sector employees.

IT recruitment in Birmingham

The UK’s second city is a hive of technological innovation with thousands of highly skilled candidates, whether they’re newly-qualified graduates or experienced seniors looking for their next opportunity.

Birmingham’s demographic has been steadily changing year on year, with millennial occupants on the rise. The three local universities all offer excellent Computer Science courses, and post-graduation, many are choosing to stay in Birmingham. That means an increase in both the number of potential candidates and the IT employment figures year on year.

There’s also a large amount of affordable flexible office space. Goldman Sachs tested the waters in Birmingham before making the decision in 2022 to permanently house their new engineering division in the city centre, meaning a large number of highly-skilled jobs.
