World-renowned as a place of sporting excellence, Trafford is the home of Manchester United and Lancashire County Cricket Club. With excellent schools, four town centres with their own unique character, as well as superb restaurants and leisure opportunities, Trafford is a much sought-after place to live. The facets of this thriving and prosperous environment all contribute to growing and maintaining the highly skilled, local workforce.
