IT Recruitment in York
York has always been an important city. Founded by the Romans in 71AD, a major river port under the Vikings, and a major hub of the railway network, it has always been a significant junction between the north and the south.
In the last fifteen years or so, in the region of £800m has been invested in York’s science and technology infrastructure; and it’s now a thriving hub of about one hundred or so technology/digital based businesses employing more than 2400 people….and growing!
York has also been named a future technology hub. Joblift, a jobsearch engine, conducted a study in 2018 to analyse which cities and towns will dominate the UK’s technology scene in the near future; and York was the only northern city to be on the list. The study was based on towns and cities with populations under 200,000 and having both a high number of tech jobs and a high percentage of tech jobs compared to the wider market place.
York is the home of two universities, a flourishing digital tech scene, and a developing ecosystem for startups; and a new report (November 2020) from Whitecap Consulting, in conjunction with the City of York and the University of York claim that the development of a business accelerator would position York as an entrepreneurial location and a key part of the innovation ecosystem across northern England. This is precisely what the city needs inorder to take early stage and growth businesses to the next level.
There is a very strong tech community in York, and numerous tech events occur throughout the year, of which some of the more popular meetups are:
