Oxford has ranked 2nd in UK for economic output - and a large contributing factor to that is the tech sector.
From personal experience, this doesn't really come across as a surprise. Anecdotally, Oxford seems to have more than of it's fair share of established tech businesses, and especially tech start ups.
A knock on effect of this is that when it comes to recruitment in Oxford, particularly within software development, good candidates find themselves in a strong position, with doors opening all over the place.
I'd urge anyone getting tired of the big smoke and looking for a change to consider Oxford. There are lots of opportunities here for skilled people working in tech industries.
OXFORD’s technology sector helped it into second place behind London in a ranking of UK cities by total ecomomic output, according to a new study.
