Talent comes to us from a variety of backgrounds and for a number of reasons. There is talent from other parts of the UK looking to relocates, locals, graduates and the diaspora.

In our experience we see 5 main reasons. 1) A New Career Opportunity, 2) A Change in Environment, 3) A Better Quality of Life, 4) A New Start and 5) To be Closer to Family.

Employers create a profile and can post jobs to newtown. Talent can apply directly to the hiring company. We offer a range of products including an exec talent network that aims to connect senior executives with 10yrs+ experience with tech companies around the UK.

Tech cities in the UK are thriving with innovative startups being created and global tech companies opening offices, however 65% of tech companies outside of London are reporting a skills shortage with local talent becoming more competitive and expensive to hire. Newtown exists to help companies and ecosystems across the UK attract talent. Our believe is that people are more likely to apply for a job when ecosystem information and company context accompany a job ad.
