A major city located in the north western region of England, Manchester is renowned for its railway viaducts and canals, all of which point towards its historical first-modern-industrial-city roots. And of course, not forgetting the fact that it is home to Manchester United’s football ground. All of the city’s recent restorations, including the revitalised Salford Quays dockyards and its impressive nightlife, have made it a popular destination for weekend getaways and tourists. While Manchester’s exhilarating nightlife has lots on offer, the UK’s 6th largest city is home to more than 500,000 permanent residents; that means that there are plenty of jobs to recruit for. So, what is it really like to recruit in this concrete jungle?
Top destination for candidates wanting a good work-life balance
According to research from CV-Library, Manchester was revealed as one of the top UK cities for work-life balance. 54.9% of survey respondents ranked Manchester as a top destination for securing a positive work-life balance and this is likely to give recruiters a run for their money. Consultants recruiting or situated within Manchester may, therefore, find it easier to attract talent if the area is already doing a good job at selling itself.
