A Wealth of Talent
Manchester has a critical mass of highly skilled professionals and specialists, drawing from a large labour pool that extends far beyond the boundaries of the conurbation itself – south into Macclesfield and Congleton in Cheshire, east into High Peak in Derbyshire, west into St Helen’s in Merseyside and north into Blackburn.
Greater Manchester’s workforce is relatively strongly skilled in UK terms with the majority qualified to NVQ level 2 and above, skills which are critical to raising productivity.
