Companies like Google, Amazon, Freshfields, LLP, and Microsoft have all opened offices in the city, in addition to the arrival of the BBC at Media City. This continual arrival of big businesses has brought a wealth of job opportunities, establishing it as an economic powerhouse. You can see the effect on the city’s skyline with more property being constructed than anywhere else in Europe.

Living in Manchester

From a lifestyle point of view, Manchester has a lot to offer. It’s big enough to provide amazing job opportunities and still small enough for you to feel part of the community. You can bump into someone you know when walking across the city.

If live music is your scene, you’ll find something exciting any night of the week. Prefer the countryside?

All of which are within an hour or two’s drive meaning you’re spoilt for choice. Plus, it’s at least 30% cheaper than living in London with just as many opportunities on your doorstep.
