London has drawn in young professionals for decades, due to the job opportunities, culture – and the cutting-edge social scene, of course! In fact, 24% of central London’s population is made up of 25-34 year olds.
There are over 40,000 tech companies in the country’s capital – mostly populated around Shoreditch and Old Street. However, for creative jobs such as digital marketing, the majority of brands are situated in Islington, Camden and Soho – although there are opportunities everywhere.
