Berlin/Hamburg 2 May 2017 - There has recently been a lot of movement in the UK’s FinTech market; Chancellor Philip Hammond has praised UK FinTech firms, while Taveet Hinrikus, co-founder of TransferWise, has commented on the European FinTech unicorn’s decision to relocate out of the current FinTech capital, London. Hinrikus warned FinTech companies against settling in the UK amidst the Brexit uncertainty, especially with the recent announcement from the EU about the lock-down on the UK’s financial sector. However, meta search engine Joblift has investigated whether the UK’s FinTech job market is currently experiencing the effects of Brexit and if new FinTech companies really are looking away from London. Joblift’s studies show a significant average growth of 5% in the number of jobs advertised in the FinTech sector. Furthermore, Joblift has compared London’s FinTech landscape with that of Berlin – the European city being hotly tipped as London’s major competitor – and has shown that confidence still lies with London over its European counterparts.
Joblift is meta search engine for currently more than 1,000,000 jobs from over 100 partner job boards. Joblift’s customised search filters and email notifications allow users to personalise their search criteria. The company was founded in 2015 by Lukas Erlebach and Malte Widenka. At the two locations in Hamburg and Berlin, Joblift currently employs a team of around 40 employees.
