Five top tech companies hiring this week

The UK ended 2022 as Europe’s largest and most powerful tech hub, and this is reflected in the job market, says Aisling O’Toole

Opportunities across the tech sector currently make up 14 per cent of the total available jobs in the UK and are expected to reach a ten-year high, with the growth in areas such as fintech, AI and automation showing strength.
