Think of working in England, and you might conjure up images of London: of travelling on the Tube; of Camden Market; of Canary Wharf; of fashion and finance. But jobs in England are far more diverse than what’s going on down in London Town. From Land’s End to the Cheviot Hills, jobs in England are as many and varied as the types of weather you’ll experience in one day. Separating the English experience from the UK one can be hard given that England sets the tone for how the rest of the UK operates. However, England still offers job seekers its own unique flavour.
Cultural life is broad and varied, with some of the best galleries, museums and theatres in the world located on English soil. Sports fans can take advantage of easy access to premier league stadia, to some of the most famous sports arenas in the world, and miles and miles of unspoiled coastline. While England isn’t traditionally known for its haute cuisine, the recent increase in celebrity chefs has renewed interest in English fine dining, and who else doesn’t love a bit of pub grub?!
As the home of the language that dominates Western society, most of the major companies in the world have a branch, or are based, in England. It’s a vital location for any company worth its salt. This is exciting news for job seekers looking for jobs in England, as it means that they can choose from many industries, in almost any discipline that appeals to them.
Manchester may be famous for its music and its football teams, but it’s also the bustling home of a really exciting job scene. Manchester accounts for 50% of the North West’s economic output and 5% of the national total! Leeds has a population of 770,000 and is continuing to grow due to its appeal as a great place to live and work. Birmingham is by far the largest manufacturing and engineering centre in the UK, and it’s now putting great emphasis on developing more creative industries like ICT and media along with financial services. Liverpool has an economy worth £20bn, and a legendary nightlife – two sides of a very appealing coin!
