Why Move to Nottingham?
Perhaps best known for its links to the legendary heroics of Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest, Nottingham is in modern times a thriving metropolis in the East Midlands.
During the Industrial Revolution, much of Nottingham’s prosperity was founded on the textile industry but today its major sectors are digital media, life sciences and retail and leisure among others.
In a recent survey carried out by The Independent, Nottingham was voted one of the Best Places in The UK To Make A Living.
Its economy is the seventh largest in the UK, as measured by GDP and although wages are less than the capital and other industrial cities, Nottingham has gained newly held fame as the ‘saver friendly’ alternative.
More and more people are escaping to cities like Nottingham where industries are on the rise and the cost of living hasn’t caught up, allowing them to pocket more at the end of the month.
With extra cash in your pocket there are plenty of ways to spend your leisure time in Nottingham. Head to the centre of town and you can find the Capital FM Arena, which hosts major music concerts, or source out the up and coming talent at the famous Rock City venue.
The city’s bustling independent shopping scene attracts people from all over the region and operates unwittingly above a network of over 800 caves carved out in the Dark Ages.
The city has a proud sporting history and was named England’s ‘first City of Football’ in 2014, ahead of Manchester. Cricket lovers can also pay a visit to Trent Bridge to watch the best fast and spin bowlers participate in one day internationals.
Nottingham Schools & Education
Nottingham has a diverse education system which includes inner city comprehensives, fee-paying independent schools, several specialist colleges and two major universities.
The city is organised into five constituent faculties, within which there are more than 50 schools, departments, institutes and research centres. Nottingham has about 44,000 students and 9,000 staff.
The city’s oldest provider of education is Nottingham High School which can trace its history back to 1513.
Notable students include the writer D.H Lawrence and the politician, Kenneth Clarke.
Together they have more than 60,000 undergraduate students and more than 15,000 postgraduates.
More information on researching and finding schools in the area can be found on the Nottingham city council website.
Working in Nottingham
Nottingham was the centre of a thriving export trade in religious sculptures made from Nottingham Alabaster before becoming a pioneer in the textile industry, as well as bicycle manufacturing (notably Raleigh bikes), and the tobacco industries.
Today Nottingham is the East Midlands premier commercial, retail, financial and business centre, and the city plays a distinctive role in the UK’s national and regional economic growth.
The retail sector in particular is pivotal to the city’s economy and one of its major employers.
The city also has a reputation for being enterprising and in 2011 the Nottingham Enterprise Zone was created with further plans for new business park for aerospace, rail and automotive technology.
Many large companies have their headquarters in the city, these include Boots (now known as Alliance Boots), Pedigree pet foods, Siemens, Vision Express and Specsavers.
Among the science-based industries within the city is BioCity.
The UK’s biggest bioscience innovation and incubation centre, houses around 80 science-based companies.
It comes as no surprise therefore that Nottingham was one of the top 10 cities in the UK for job growth from 2004-2013, as well as having the largest number of new start-up companies in the UK during 2014-15.
Nottingham offers a diverse and thriving property market.
The city is known for its mix of architectural styles, featuring historic buildings like Nottingham Castle alongside modern developments.
Nottingham’s property landscape includes a range of options, from period houses and Victorian terraces to contemporary apartments and new-builds.
The city centre offers a vibrant urban living experience, while surrounding neighbourhoods provide a more suburban or village-like atmosphere.
Nottingham’s property market benefits from its rich cultural heritage, vibrant arts scene, and a range of amenities, including shopping centres, parks, and sports facilities, making it an attractive place to live for a diverse range of residents.
