London’s tech sector to add 46,000 jobs

The digital technology sector is expected to create 46,000 jobs in the capital and add an extra £12bn to the economy over the next decade, so says mayor Boris Johnson.  The extra 46,000 jobs would be nearly 30% more than the 155,600 currently employed. The mayor kicked off the week at an event in Shoreditch’s Silicon Roundabout area, joined by business leaders including Sir Michael Moritz, chairman of venture capital firm Sequoia Capital, and Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City. The news comes a day after eight leading tech firms, including Microsoft, Virgin Media and Capgemini, marked the start of London Tech Week by pledging to take on nearly 2,000 apprentices in London by 2016.
