What Jobs?

What jobs are there in Manchester?

Manchester, along with many cities in the north, 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 as Salford houses MediaCityUK which contains the likes of BBC, ITV, Kellogg’s and 250 more 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

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 all 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.
