Fuelling FinTech: attracting the UK's future tech talent into financial services

Digital transformation is increasingly driving financial services recruitment needs.

Our latest report, ‘Fuelling FinTech: attracting the UK’s tech talent into financial services’, found that a limited pool of tech talent, further drained by a reduction in the flow of EU tech graduates into the UK, is making recruiting and retaining the right people an ever greater challenge for the finance sector.

To help address this issue and ensure the UK’s burgeoning FinTech sector continues to thrive, the report makes a series of recommendations for the sector and its engagement with those educating future employees. These include learning from other industries, such as pharmaceuticals and manufacturing, which have forged successful long-term partnerships with academia. The report also calls for better data gathering on the industry skills needs, and greater leadership on reskilling existing employees.
