London, 1st February 2018 – When it comes to technology, London, Manchester and Birmingham dominate the job market. However, growth in these cities is slow and the competition increasingly high. With this in mind, Joblift has analysed which smaller UK cities and towns are set to become Britain’s tech hubs of tomorrow. By analysing the top 50 locations in terms of the number of tech vacancies over the last 12 months, Joblift has ranked the top ten places, with under 200,000 citizens,  predicted to dominate the UK’s tech scene in coming years. A point based system was implemented, taking into account the average increase in tech vacancies, the percentage tech jobs held compared to the entire job market, and the total number of tech jobs in every location. Extra points were also awarded to cities that have a university which was listed in the top 500 universities worldwide for Engineering and Technology degrees.  It is notable that eight of the top ten cities are in the South of England, with only Warwick and York bucking the trend.
