Three UK-wide fintech jobs of the week
Jobbio's Kirstie McDermott takes a look at three job openings in the UK fintech industry for parents.
As the UK’s tech hubs and cities expand and prosper, so do the job opportunities. While London remains the centre of activity, there are now more than 2,500 Fintech companies across the UK, and they are growing: between the years of 2011-2016, the increase was 21 per cent year-on-year.
Many clusters of increasing importance are emerging, including Manchester and Leeds, the Glasgow-Edinburgh corridor, Cambridge and Bristol and Cardiff. So when it comes to a Fintech, crypto or digital banking job hunt, London is now just part of a much wider range of nationwide possibilities for those looking to enter the industry or expand their existing prospects.
Below, we’re highlighting three roles across England, Scotland and Wales, and for plenty more job opportunities, visit our Job Board.
