The Top Cities To Find A Job In 2018 Revealed


Brighton, Manchester and Glasgow are the top locations to find a new job this year, according to newly released data...

The research, compiled on behalf of leading independent job site CV-Library, which analysed the total number of jobs in the UK’s key cities in 2017 compared with 2016, found that the top ten cities to look for work in 2018 are:

  • Brighton – up 19.9%
  • Manchester – up 15.3%
  • Glasgow – up 14.6%
  • Portsmouth – up 13.5%
  • Sheffield – up 13.5%
  • Birmingham – up 11.4%
  • Bristol – up 8%
  • Leeds – up 7.6%
  • Aberdeen – up 7.1%
  • Edinburgh – up 5.9%

Interestingly, Liverpool and London didn’t appear in the top 10, despite seeing the biggest growth in 2016, while Edinburgh, which also appeared in the top three cities last year, edged to the bottom of the table in 2017.

In addition, while there are more jobs available, there is fierce competition for these roles, particularly in Bristol, Brighton and Birmingham where applications rose by 9.8%, 8% and 6.7% respectively.

What’s more, some cities saw substantial increases in pay last year, making them promising locations for salary increases in 2018:

  • Aberdeen – salaries up 10.8%
  • Hull – salaries up 8.5%
  • Edinburgh – salaries up 6.2%
  • Brighton – salaries up 6.1%
  • Sheffield – salaries up 5.3%
  • Bristol – salaries up 5.1%
  • Birmingham – salaries up 1.9%
  • Manchester – salaries up 1.6%
  • Cardiff – salaries up 1.3%
  • Liverpool – salaries up 1.1%
