Local Solihull Company Ranks as One of the Top Tech Employers in the UK

Solihull’s Wise has been ranked as one of the best UK employers for tech. They are a self-employed tech specialist and are based in the town centre. They have been named as one of the best places to work after a rigorous testing process regarding overall culture and staff satisfaction. The achievement puts them alongside some of the UK’s most innovative firms in the country. The staff survey that was conducted was done completely anonymously, with the company scoring 91% for satisfaction. Their highest-scoring areas covered diversity, inclusion and teamwork.

The Growth of the UK Tech Sector

Tech as a whole is booming in the UK. Right now, the tech sector employs over 1.7 million people, contributing £150 billion to the UK economy every year. A big factor in this would be the casino sector. New games hit the market all the time, with software engineers accounting for 10% of jobs advertised in the country. With games such as Plinko Go in UK being so popular, alongside hits such as Cinderella’s Ball and Chicken Drop, it’s not surprising to see that gaming contributes a lot to the sector. In fact, the median game developer salary stands at £52,000, which is way above the national average wage of £28,000. The demand for tech-oriented positions is more evident than ever, as the country transitions to a more digitally-focused future.
