CityAM reported today that UK tech startups are expected to created 20,000 jobs this year and that tech startup vacancies are up 80% on last year. The data from Adzuna.

It’s great to see the startup scene making a real and growing impact on job creation and the economy.

To put that into context, 202,000 jobs were created over Q1 in the UK economy as a whole (see ONS). Over the year then 20,000 jobs would be about 2.5% of total jobs created, albeit they will be amongst the best jobs.
