PETERBOROUGH NAMED AS ONE OF THE UK'S TOP 5 CITIES TO WORK IN.
According to new research out today, Wednesday July 13, conducted by recruitment firm Glassdoor®, Peterborough is the fifth best town or city in the UK in which to work.
Cambridge claimed the top spot, followed by Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Leeds.
The list is compiled by ranking UK towns and cities with the highest Glassdoor Job Score, determined by weighting three factors equally: how easy it is to get a job (hiring opportunity), how affordable it is to live there (cost of living), and how satisfied employees are working there (overall job satisfaction).
As part of this report, Glassdoor includes each city and town’s median pay for employees, current average home value, overall job satisfaction rating, population and number of current job openings.
The emergence of some of Britain’s key industrial and northern cities has meant that Britain’s capital city, London, is outside the Top 20 on this 2016 list.
“Cambridge has long had a reputation for one of Britain’s most loved cities, but now it’s emerged as a prime spot for high-tech companies which is clearly having an impact on where people decide to live and work,” said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist.
“These results are a reminder that although there are more jobs in London and employees are generally pretty satisfied, it is a competitive place to work and an expensive place to live. Towns and cities such as Nottingham, Leeds and Reading offer decent salaries and job prospects combined with a lower cost of living which means your money will go further, you can save, and still and have a good quality of life.”
