“...The turning point came in 2006 when we signed Confused.com,” Phillips explains. Revenues hit £230,000 in the first year, and almost tripled to £680,000 a year later.
Broadbandchoices now has more than 50 partners, and the business, based on High Holborn, employs 50 staff. “London is a great place to be involved in tech, but recruitment is a challenge,” says Phillips.
“There’s a shortage of developers, and a lot of vacancies are being filled by people from overseas. It would be much better if these people were graduating from UK universities.” ..."
There are definitely jobs out there - as for talent... well I don't see that as a problem either I know plenty of tech graduates who are willing to learn. Perhaps the problem is more that companies don't factor in the added cost of training into their business so they are struggling (quite rightly) because they haven't made adequate provisions for such needs.
