Why Manchester?

Bring your skills to the UK’s most forward-thinking city

Manchester City Council is keen to attract talented people from all over the country to join our team and support our improvement journey. To this end we have recently reviewed our relocation package and can now offer a lump sum of up to £9,230 in relocation support depending on your personal circumstances.

Please see full details of our relocation support package here

‘Capital of the North’

With a population of almost 460,000, Manchester is the UK’s third largest city, but is widely regarded as Britain's ‘second city’ and arguably the most exciting, cultural and forward-thinking. The decline of manufacturing and heavy industry in the 1980s provided a powerful catalyst for the city to regenerate itself and seek a new direction. In the 1990s Manchester City Council embarked on an ambitious redevelopment scheme that has transformed the city's physical appearance and rejuvenated its economy.

Economic Powerhouse

Manchester is booming. Last year, economic growth in the city outperformed major international capitals such as Paris, Berlin and Tokyo. You can see it on the streets with new office, retail, leisure, housing and transport developments springing up across the city.


Despite this, the cost of housing, both in modern developments in the city centre and in the suburbs, is a very pleasant surprise when compared to southern house prices and rents – or even UK averages. But house prices are rising so it is a great time to invest in the City.


Manchester is also one of the fastest improving Councils for secondary educational attainment in the UK, and 86.5% of our primary schools are rated good or outstanding.

A great city in which to rest and play

  • Manchester is an urban playground for kids with lots of family friendly events throughout the city
  • Manchester's thriving music scene and nightlife owes much to the ‘Madchester Band' phenomena of the 1980s.
  • Food-wise, few places in the UK can match Manchester. From Michelin-starred restaurants to traditional home cooked pub food, Manchester has it all.
  • Manchester is also renowned for its diverse and rich arts and cultural scene.
  • Few places outside of London can beat Manchester for shopping
  • When it comes to sport, the city boasts two Premier League football clubs, Lancashire County Cricket Club, the Velodrome and a wide range of public leisure centres, sporting clubs and five-a-side pitches
