The leading tech disruptor according to UK jobseekers? Well, while LinkedIn analytics put the likes of Uber, Airbnb, WeWork and Deliveroo in the top 10, the number-one spot goes to challenger bank Monzo, whose services are proving popular with millennials up for some smartphone banking.

And Monzo yesterday raised £71 million in a round of funding from Stripe, Goodwater Capital, Sequoia’s Michael Moritz, Passion Capital, Thrive Capital, and Orange Digital Ventures, valuing the start-up at £280 million.

In second place is Perkbox, which enables employers to offer staff perks, including the likes mobile phone insurance, free coffee and deals on cinema tickets.

Also worth a mention is Touch Surgery – in 10th – which has developed a training app for surgeons that boasts over 100 simulations of surgical procedures, so healthcare professionals can rehearse for surgery.
