What jobs are in Greater Manchester?

Greater Manchester, which includes Rochdale, Stockport and Wigan, has a strong history in the manufacturing sector which has played a large part in the development of the city. Since its rapid growth, other sectors have gradually become more popular. The financial sector is now a large part of the city, as well as IT and Construction. Manchester is the perfect city for journalists and others working in media. This is all due to Salford housing MediaCityUK which contains the likes of BBC, ITV, Kellogg’s and 250 smaller media and digital businesses. 

The city has recently been recognised by the UK government as one of the six “science cities” across the country. It has become an important city for research, development and academic excellence. With The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University as well as the University of Salford, the area has many great opportunities for professors, researchers and lecturers. Some of the top employers for graduates include the Manchester Airport Group, BBC, The Co-Operative Group, Adidas and JD Sports. Greater Manchester represents more than £43 billion of the UK regional GVA which is more than Wales, Northern Ireland and even the North East of England. The Trafford Centre, located in Trafford, hires retail assistants and store consultants to name a few.

Manchester Science Park is home to over 120 innovative businesses with opportunities for biologists, scientists, Java developers and engineers. With nightlife growing in Manchester, there are many opportunities for talented bartenders and waiters. Furthermore, Virgin Media’s Manchester office is one of the busiest hubs and is home to the ‘business’ customer service, complaint handling and social media customer support.

Barclays Wealth and Investment Management office is in the city, providing jobs to bankers, financial advisors and many more. 

What is it like living in Greater Manchester?

Manchester is only a little cheaper than London but an average 2-bedroom flat in the city would cost around £800 per month to rent. This is made worth it with the city’s vast retail scene in the centre and surrounding areas (Trafford Centre). As everyone knows, Manchester is home to Manchester United and Manchester City football teams, making the Old Trafford and the Etihad Stadium popular destinations.
