IT Recruitment in Hull
Throughout it’s history Kingston-Upon-Hull, or more simply, Hull, has been built on trading, seafaring, and a can-do attitude. It is unique in being the only city in the UK with its own independent telephone network company, KCOM Group, and was the first telecom operator in Europe to offer ADSL to business users; and more recently, in October 2019, to be the first UK City to offer full fibre broadband to all it’s residents.
With it’s world class technical infrastructure, and moving ever closer to becoming one of the first smart cities in the UK, it is no wonder that Hull has become a major hub for technology and innovation in the East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire area.
The Centre for Digital Innovation (C4DI),which was founded in 2014, is now a cornerstone for the Hull tech community and provides top class co-working space, tech incubation and corporate innovation; and is often referred to as ‘a beacon for technology.’ Over the last few years C4DI has also acted as a means of connection between its startups and Hull’s local businesses, thereby facilitating both to take advantage of commercial opportunities in the private sector.
Taking all this into consideration, Hull and the surrounding area offers an ideal situation in terms of tech start-ups, combining excellent connectivity, low cost base and tech/digital incubation space. According to the online magazine, Startups Geek , Hull is the best city in Yorkshire to start a business, beating the likes of even Leeds and Sheffield. The fastest internet download speeds in the world, low staff salary, and cheap office costs were some of the reasons cited as the reason.
There is a very strong tech community in Hull, and numerous tech events occur throughout the year, of which some of the more popular meetups are:
As well as having the ecosystem to facilitate startups, scaleups, enterprises, and even potential unicorns, one of the key pieces in the jigsaw is the availability of talent. The digital economy in the Humber is well supported by the University of Hull, and its top rated Computer Science department.
