According to the latest figures from LinkedIn and Stack Overflow, London is the top destination in Europe for international tech workers.

The UK capital’s technology and cultural scene continues to be a draw for tech talent from overseas, with analysis of LinkedIn’s members showing that London welcomed more European and non-EU tech professionals than any other major EU city in 2018.

According to the findings, London retained the top spot as the most ‘attractive’ destination for tech workers looking to move for work for the second year in a row, ahead of the likes of Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.

Laura Citron, CEO of London & Partners, said: "London is home to some of the best technical and creative minds who are helping us to lead the way in cutting edge research and innovations in high growth areas such as Fintech and Artificial Intelligence.

"Today’s figures demonstrate that London is an open, welcoming city and that the strength of our tech sector is built on the international makeup of our tech workforce."
