The UK is home to many hyper-growth tech companies and startups, which collectively raise over $50bn in venture capital funding by the end of 2022, second only to the US.
Now, the UK requires over five million tech professionals to fill in all the jobs in tech sector.
As the demand for tech professionals is rapidly growing, in February 2020, the UK government launched a special Global Talent Program that provides generous benefits to attract tech talent to the UK.
The UK has the ambition to remain a global tech superpower competing against US and China for capital and, most importantly, talent. So the UK government creates attractive incentives to attract suitable professionals.
