New poll sees the Midlands powerhouse beat out Coventry, Sheffield and Newcastle for top spot.
If you’re a tech professional in the UK, then it looks like Nottingham is the best place to head.
VBQ Speakers has conducted research to find out which city in the UK is the best for professionals in the technology industry.
The survey analysed almost 500 advertised vacancies, listed under ‘full-time’ and ‘technology occupations’, on the job-seeker website Indeed. Once all the jobs had been collated, they scored and ranked them out of 100 based on the advertised salary, the average cost of living in that city and the number of jobs available.
Nottingham scored 76, with an average wage of £33,254 and the cost of living around £1,200.
This is followed by Sheffield, where the cost of living is relatively low and wages are above average, with a score of 64.
VBQ Speakers Founder & Director, Leo von Bülow-Quirk, said: “Tech professionals are in great demand in the UK at the moment, and this comes at a time when many people are reconsidering where they want to live and how much they want to be working from home or in the office.
“Of course there are many personal factors that go into choosing where to live and work, but hopefully this analysis will provide useful food for thought for UK tech professionals considering their next career move.”
London didn’t even make the top 10, coming in at position 14. Whilst there were 104 technology jobs available, the advertised wages started relatively low despite the cost of living being the highest in the UK.
