The UK tech industry is now valued at $1 trillion, and the nation’s largest city is the driving force behind it. London-based businesses attracted £5.8 billion in venture capital investments between April and June 2022, which is over four times as much as the rest of the UK combined. London is the largest tech hub in Europe, and worldwide it’s bested only by Silicon Valley. 

“Time and again, the capital attracts entrepreneurs and investors who see London as a global city and recognise that it is a fantastic place to start, grow and scale a business.
Russ Shaw CBE, founder of Tech London Advocates and Global Tech Advocates

Much of the city’s historical reputation comes from its banking industry, and now the tech revolution is giving rise to a new generation of leading finance industries. “Challenger” banks are digital-only institutions, using AI and cloud-based infrastructure to streamline customers’ user experience. Successful examples include Monzo, Starling, and Revolut, all located in London.

The AI sector itself has also seen rapid development; there are now over 1,300 AI companies in the city, and the sector has grown by 48% year-on-year since 2016. Across every specialism, London is leading the UK’s digital growth.

Why look for IT jobs in London?

The largest global companies either already have a base in London, or are making plans to create one; Google are investing £1bn in their new headquarters in King’s Cross, while Apple’s London campus is based in Battersea Power Station and Microsoft’s is located in Paddington. The sheer scale of the city’s employment opportunities makes it ideal for graduates and high-level workers alike.

The tech sector is responsible for 1 in 5 London jobs, so it’s no surprise that there are plenty of social and community events. London Tech Week brings together innovative thinkers from across the tech ecosystem in a week-long celebration of forward-thinking digital design.
