London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2021 -- As a whole, the demand of FinTech and technology talent throughout 2020 was steady. While the year was certainly tougher than usual for many businesses, it appeared that most agreed that falling behind on the execution of key technology agendas would only make life more difficult in the long run. Medium and High Frequency Trading firms – often renowned for thriving off instability – accelerated technology hiring to ensure they capitalised on growth opportunities. This was also the case for many FinTech companies and consumer groups in the digital banking sphere. With the post-Brexit hiring landscape well underway, FinTech has been marked for further expansion throughout the UK, which impressively, already has more FinTech unicorns (a startup with a valuation over $1 billion) than the rest of Europe. With this in mind, it's set to be a very busy year in London when it comes to sourcing, recruiting and hiring top-talent within this space. With a shortage of talent within the UK finance realm, the demand for high-calibre professionals is due to spill over into the European and global talent market.
