With a population of some twelve million people and a ranking as Europe’s largest city, London is a hive of business activity. Over one hundred of Europe’s five hundred biggest companies are based in the UK’s capital, mostly in central London. Business services is an enormous industry in London and IT support and development is a key part of it. Indeed, there are many opportunities for such employment in London’s busy financial district for example.
In January 2013, Google announced that it will be building a HQ branch in London, investing hundreds of millions of pounds in the property, which many analysts think will encourage more computer companies to migrate. Beyond opportunities at computer companies themselves, there are many chances to work as an in-house IT specialist at non-IT businesses in the capital.
How much you can expect to earn in London will obviously depend upon your specialism and level of expertise. For a technical support manager role, you can expect to earn around 30k-45k per year. Web development staff will often earn somewhere around 30k. Salaries can vary somewhat. You can expect to earn more in London, but this is a reflection of higher living costs.
When it comes to finding the right IT professionals, many busy London companies choose to source through recruitment agencies. There are many under-qualified applicants looking for work in IT, and this can leave potential employers flooded with unhelpful CVs. Experienced recruitment agencies solve this problem by using contacts and expertise to source the best-qualified candidates, pre-screening them before they meet with potential employers.
