EDTECH PRACTICE

Eutopia is a boutique provider of recruitment solutions. Our clients benefit from our commitment to quality and unparalleled industry, functional and regional expertise. In the last 18 years, we have placed more than 4,250+ talented individuals, winning numerous industry awards including Recruiter Magazine's Gold Award, the most prestigious award in the industry.  Whilst we work across different industry verticals, the common theme for all our clients is that they are all undergoing significant transformation within their markets or organisations - and the EdTech sector is no exception.

MARKET INSIGHT 

Education Technology - EdTech - is one of the UK's fastest growing sectors. The industry has reached the same number of companies as the Fintech sector - with over 1,200 EdTech companies based in the UK and is growing by 22% year-on-year. It accounts for 4% of all UK digital companies and has secured 40% of all European Investment in EdTech since 2014. This investment in the market has allowed the sector to balloon and consequently created a drive for top talent.

The technology staffing market is already competitive in the UK with various other industries such as FinTech, AI and Cybersecurity attracting professionals at all levels. This further drives the need for innovative hiring strategies along with positive and effective branding to ensure high calibre candidates are drawn into the ground breaking EdTech sector. Through our research and market insight we have found the more common hiring gaps appear to be in Software Engineering/ Programming, SaaS, Cybersecurity, UX and Gamification amongst many others.

As ever, it’s all about the talent.

Eutopia prides itself on its ability to access the best skills on the market and, in a competitive market for these individuals, to successfully upsell the Edtech sector and our clients successfully.
