Fintech (technology applied in the financial sector) is a rapidly expanding market since at least a decade and was among the engine of british economic growth, and of London in particular, since 2009, like remembered recently Chancellor Philip Hammond, Philip Hammond, since it is “adding more than £6.6 billion into the UK’s economy and attracting more than £500 million of investment” every year.
Fintech, a disruptive revolution
With such a high number, Fintech is a “disruptive” revolution which whilst is worrying thousand of workers in the financial sector all over the western world, including Italy where since 2009 over 27 thousand jobes were lost and more thousands will be cut this year and in the next, on the other hand is a market which has severly need of new engineers.
Il rischio Brexit incombe
According to UK Business Insider, which mentiones statistics by Indeed.com, one of the world biggest recruitment websites, there are 10 jobs that which have from 30% to 20% vacancies going unfilled after 60 days from pubblication and the oultook could get even worst (for companies) when Brexit will start, since British high-tech companies trying to attract the best people from around the world and it won’t be easy if new populist regulations will be adopted to restrict access of foreign workers.

A valuable working experience
Preconditions for all the positions above is of course fluency in English and a good prior experience in the role, which not always a young Italian worker has. My personal advice is, if you will be able, to go anyway to have a working experience abroad, if just ot understand how is absurd for you to waste your time and talent waiting for working calls that don’t come.
