Recruiting in the North West, Manchester:

What better location to grow your IT career than in the city which created the forefather of all modern computers? In 1948, the Small-Scale Experimental Machine (SSEM) nicknamed, Baby, executed its first program spurring a digital revolution which changed the world we live in.

Baby Manchester IT  Computer

Manchester hasn’t lost its eye for computer science. David Levine, CEO of DigitalBridge states that:

Manchester is one of the world’s leading research centres for computer vision and machine learning with a great talent pool coming out of the universities.

Of course, it’s not just the job opportunities that make Manchester an ideal city to recruit in. The quality of life is also a huge factor in any job move. Manchester is a mecca for music, nightlife, and shopping.

As though being hailed the sporting capital of Europe wasn’t enough, Manchester has set its sights even higher and is well on its way to the arts and culture capital. Having recently invested in the £25M HOME arts centre, it will also be unveiling a £110M Old Granada Studios in 2019, which will act as the base for the Manchester International Festival featuring theatre, dance, music, and more.

After a break from the city? Fight the IT department stereotype, and enjoy the great outdoors. Manchester has natural beauty on its doorstep in the Peak District and Lake District within easy reach.

Manchester attracts IT talent from all over the UK and Europe but also has a well-established stream of homegrown support. Comprising part of the elite Russell Group, Manchester University can count 25 Nobel Prize winners among its staff and students, the most of any university in the UK after Oxford and Cambridge, making a highly competitive graduate recruitment scene.
