Recent research from Deloitte paints a picture of a UK start-up scene that is growing and decentralising, especially within the fintech sector.
The Deloitte National Connectivity Chapter found that a third of all fintech start-ups are located outside the capital, as VCs focus their attention on cities that have high levels of talent and low costs of living.
The study also shows that the UK continues to create global category-defining fintechs, particularly in wealth tech and payments.
With experts predicting that the fintech industry will create up to 50,000 jobs in the next three years, those looking to get ahead of the competition are stepping into specialised areas of growth now.
These areas are similar on both sides of the pond, with the US predicting growth in demand for roles that include AI, security, UX design and data scientists. The Growth Business job board is full of opportunities across these areas, ensuring continued career success for those who continue to upskill.
