The Baltic Triangle’s Booming Digital Sector
Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle has been on the cutting edge of the city for many years now. Not only is it creative and alternative, but it is also forward-thinking and modern, with an innovative digital and technology sector. The Baltic Triangle has become a hub for enterprise and is becoming one of the best locations for digital start-ups.
Liverpool has recently gained the prestigious status of a ‘UK tech cluster’. This ranking means that digital industries are more likely to grow faster and provide higher salaries than in other areas of the country. A range of innovative and unique start-ups are flourishing in the Baltic Triangle business environment, especially in emerging technology sectors. As a result, Baltic Triangle jobs are abundant and eclectic. From video games to PR, small businesses are finding a home in this thriving post-industrial landscape.
According to a recent Tech City report, there are currently an impressive 23,407 digital jobs in Liverpool. These highly skilled and innovative jobs are providing unique opportunities for digital professionals to grow and flourish in a dynamic community. The benefits of an innovative and prosperous digital career are enticing highly skilled workers to the region, which has inevitably led to higher demand for property in the area.
There has been a significant £359 million digital gross value added and correspondingly 194 start-up births between 2011 and 2015, which shows that the Baltic Triangle is a perfect home for the digital sector. Substantial investment in the tech industry and the opportunities available for digital companies have had a widely positive effect, attracting other similar companies to the area.
Mark Lawler, who is the Managing Director of Baltic Creative CIC, said to Getintothis website:
“Liverpool’s tech sector is booming, with figures showing that digital jobs in the north are growing 10x the rate of non-digital jobs. Here at Baltic Creative, we are witnessing a huge demand for dedicated tech space.”
The growing digital sector in the Baltic Triangle has played a vital role in establishing the foundations for a thriving modern community with a uniquely Liverpudlian twist.
