Manchester

Manchester is the largest and fastest growing economy outside London with a proud tradition of entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation. The city has transformed itself into one of Europe’s most dynamic and exciting cities in which to live and work, boasting an increasingly diverse economy and a real sense of investor confidence.

Voted best UK city for a new headquarters*, Manchester is the regional centre for finance, commerce and retail. World-class transport links combine with an abundance of property offerings, making Manchester one of best cities in Europe in which to do business. As a result, major corporations – such as the Co-Operative Group, Ticketmaster and Royal Bank of Scotland – have chosen to establish operations in the city.

Manchester is an ambitious city and is continuing to develop itself as a centre of national and international significance, where businesses and residents alike benefit from the economic and social improvements. Through unique strategic regeneration frameworks, city-wide redevelopment continues at a fast pace spanning commercial, residential and recreational offerings.
