NEWS: More good news – Exeter now a major UK digital economic centre


Exeter’s position as the leading city in the south west continues to strengthen with another report showing growth – this time amongst digital companies. The assessment was conducted by TechCityUK, an economic think-tank, which says the city’s digital firms generated £150m worth of business in 2016 – 15 per cent more than in the previous year.

It says:

  • no fewer than 82 new ‘start up’ digital businesses were established in 2016;
  • 14,018 jobs exist in Exeter’s digital firms, out of a total city workforce of 87,800;
  • the salaries of these digital sector jobs are high, at an average of £38,284.

The report highlights a number of IT centres in the city which are of national and international renown including the Exeter Science Park, the Exeter Mathematics School and the Met Office’s new £97million supercomputer.
