Technology is recognised as one of the most important industries for future growth. So where are the top employment tech clusters in the UK? In a recent report commissioned by KPMG and produced with Markit results showed that 21 out of 33 local authorities in London had a higher proportion of technology jobs than the national average while Cambridge had created more billion dollar technology companies than any other city in Europe.
Results also highlighted that the top 10 tech clusters are all close to major transport links in the South east. In 2012 George Osborne expressed a need to make the UK the “technology centre of Europe” and create “ new prosperity in every corner of our country” yet the report highlights that “there is currently a major gap between government aspirations and the reality of the UK Technology sector”. Although the UK tech sector output growth is the fastest since May 2010 it is clear that the growth of tech clusters is not evenly distributed.
