Northern Ireland Fast Becoming A Hub Of Technology...

As a region, Northern Ireland has recently attracted investment from leading tech and management companies like Deloitte and PWC, all choosing Belfast and Northern Ireland as prime locations for their business development. Northern Ireland companies are also leading the way - did you know that thirteen Northern Irish companies made it into Deloitte Ireland’s Tech Fast 50, which measures revenue growth? In this article, Riada want to explore the reasons behind our booming tech industry and some of the trends our team are experiencing in IT, Cloud & Technology recruitment in 2021.


Northern Ireland is home to some of the most talented and skilled professionals in Europe. Due to a large, younger population of digital natives as well as close proximity to top universities, it is fast becoming a hub for technology and a chosen home for thousands of entrepreneurs, IT professionals and digital companies.


Belfast and Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast was rated ‘world’s best region to visit in 2018' by Lonely Planet. With lower rent compared to other parts of the UK, an increasing number of skilled graduates and experienced IT professionals are now wanting to remain in Northern Ireland, where ambitious organisations are offering exciting, high value jobs. The positive press around the work life balance in the country is also having a huge impact on the profile of the region. Businesses are opening their eyes to a whole new generation of home grown talent on their doorstep.

Riada has been building a strong base of candidates by connecting on social channels, via email marketing and most recently on Linkedin. Our growing pipeline of quality Software Engineers, Testers, Web Developers and Data Analysts is exciting, with many open to opportunities and available for work now.

Embracing Digital World

Through investment and the demand for technology, Northern Ireland is embracing the new digital world and has begun to prepare and map out a future as a tech hub.
