Graduate IT Jobs in Hull


Kingston upon Hull is a city looking to the future in anticipation of 2017 (and beyond), when the city will be the European Capital of Culture.

Formerly a major industrial center, Hull’s economy is starting to take on a more technological focus and the news that graduate job prospects in the city is steadily on the rise will be music to the ears of the area’s 23,000-strong student population.

Outstanding Universities

The city is home to the University of Hull which enjoys a fine reputation for Computer Science and ranks among the top 40 for Computer Science in the country.

The university played a key part in securing the City of Culture title and is expected to benefit greatly from future investment in the area.

Job Opportunities

Hull’s technology economy has recently grown at an impressive rate and is expected to go from strength-to-strength as the city becomes Capital of Culture in 2017.

Over 12,000 people in the city are employed within the digital sector, a number that has been attributed to the strong level of growth within the city’s technology economy between 2010 and 2013.

This trend is expected to continue with the city’s C4DI tech-incubator project, something that tech businesses are queuing up to be part of.

All this contributes to Hull’s emergence as a center for technology graduate job opportunities and a location not to be ignored by Computer Science students and graduates.
