Birmingham is the UK’s 2nd largest city with a population of approximately 1.1 million within the city and roughly 4.3 million inside the Birmingham metropolitan area. Once a giant in manufacturing, the biggest employers in Birmingham now come from service industries, retailing and tourism. The city is a transport, retail and events hub, with its metropolitan economy the second largest in the UK. This helps to ensure a consistent and strong selection of jobs in Birmingham.
With its six universities, Birmingham is the largest centre of education in the UK outside of London. The city also has numerous cultural institutions, including the arts, music, literary and food. The fourth most visited city in the UK by foreign tourists, Birmingham is incredibly multi-cultured, with this mixture creating a vibrant social scene, particularly in regards cuisine.
There are many sectors to choose from when it comes to finding work in Birmingham. The area is one of Europe’s largest business, professional and financial service clusters, and continues to attract both national and international organisations. The city’s tech sector is the largest outside of London, with over 3,000 tech businesses providing jobs in Birmingham, whilst the legal and accountancy cluster is the biggest in the UK. Companies specialising in IoT, games, medtech and cyber security are particularly strong and also provide many jobs in Birmingham. Notable companies and employers in Birmingham include Deutsche Bank, HSBC and Allianz, with the city home to more banking and insurance jobs than any other English city outside of London.
There are many reasons why you should work in Birmingham. Firstly, its strategic location at the heart of the UK’s road and rail network gives Birmingham unparalleled access in terms of national markets and reach. This is expected to increase with the High Speed Rail project which will bring London less than 38 minutes away. The relative diversity of industries and jobs in Birmingham, combined with the low cost of living also make the area an attractive proposition for many. With strong retail and service sectors, as well as continued investment, there are often many job opportunities in Birmingham across many different sectors and of varying levels; from trainee to management-level positions.
As with all major cities, there are disadvantages to working in Birmingham. Traffic congestion during rush hours can cause problems for people working in the city centre, as too can a perceived lack of buses during such periods. Housing prices, particularly in the city centre, are expensive, forcing most workers to commute daily. Lack of parking and overcrowding are other problems associated with working in Birmingham. Furthermore, employers in Birmingham can tend to be focused around a smaller number of sectors and offering perhaps less variety than other large UK cities.
