Why Move to Manchester?
Manchester is a major city in the UK, with a population of almost 3,000,000. Interested in music and the performing arts, sport and leisure, or tourism and heritage? Greater Manchester has something for everyone.
The Industrial Revolution helped to put the city on the map. It grew exponentially during the 19th Century, mainly due to the cotton trade.
Enormous wealth was created, and in this time, some very significant buildings were erected such as the civic building. In the past decade, much has been done to update Manchester’s infrastructure, reparation of historical buildings and plenty of new housing developments have sprung up.
The city itself is like a laid back, slower-paced, family-friendly version of London but with cheaper homes. The city has a unique character which is a real mix of old and new. It also has an energetic, innovative vibe and is the birthplace of computers, railways, football leagues, Factory Records and Vimto!
Manchester was recently listed in The Economist Intelligence Unit 2019 survey, amongst the world’s most liveable cities. Rating higher than London, New York and Rome.
Due to the high proportion of students attending its four excellent universities, the social scene is rather hectic. The centre is filled with clubs, bars and restaurants, so many that the choice is bewildering.
The New York Times named the city as one of the best places in the world to visit in 2015; and in 2016, the city was designated as the European City of Science. Two great accolades.
Manchester has more than its fair share of museums and galleries – including 2015’s Museum of The Year, the Whitworth Art Gallery. Meanwhile, theatre/cinema/gallery mega-venues HOME and The Lowry are Manchester’s answers to London’s Southbank Centre.
Another of Manchester’s appeals is that within a short distance you can escape the city into some beautiful countryside. Fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south, the Pennines to the north you are surrounded by unspoilt, picture-postcard villages such as Disley, Dobcross, Haigh, Broadbottom and Flixton.
Working in Manchester
The Manchester city region offers a high-quality workforce of 7.2 million people within an hour’s commute of the city centre. The area is recognised as being a leading European business destination across a multitude of industries and is fast becoming a magnet for attracting global talent.

Currently, there are thousands of jobs waiting to be filled.
In demand, skills include administration at all levels. Those with experience in project management are in need too and are vital to a host of industries from the technology and engineering sectors to creative design management, working to ensure projects are delivered on time and to cost.
The future of Manchester’s economy is being driven further by Manchester City Council’s core strategy for economic development. It is introducing a swathe of initiatives to support new businesses big and small, to increase economic growth across the whole region of Greater Manchester rather than the current concentration in the city centre.
