Audacia are excited to be attending the Leeds Digital Careers Festival, which takes place on 26th September 2023 at the First Direct Arena. The event runs from 2-7pm and is a great opportunity to find out about exciting opportunities in the tech industry.
We'll be sharing some of the great opportunities that we have available with Audacia. Whether you’re coming with years of experience, or have never worked in the tech industry before, everyone is welcome to drop by and find out more about what we have to offer.
Leeds is emerging as one of the UK's most promising technology hubs. In the period leading up to September 2022, technology startups based in Leeds successfully secured £288 million in venture capital investment. This figure represents an impressive 88% increase compared to the previous year, positioning Leeds as one of the rare cities to defy the prevailing funding downturn. Highlighting the city’s resilience, this finding also points to the huge amount of tech talent that exists within the city.
Looking beyond Leeds, the wider Yorkshire region has maintained an upward economic trajectory post-pandemic, marked by the creation of an additional 42,000 digital tech jobs and an estimated contribution of £1.6 billion to the regional economy by 2025. Forecasts like this show why Yorkshire boasts the fastest-growing tech sector in the entirety of the United Kingdom.
Prominent events such as the Leeds Digital Careers Festival and [Leeds Digital Festival serve as testaments to the robust tech community that exists within the city. Audacia is proud to have been actively involved in this flourishing scene over the past 13 years, and we look forward to many more years of continued engagement.
