There’s a general acceptance that in the UK, and indeed anywhere in the world, young people taking their first steps into working life are naturally drawn to the buzz of big cities.

And in Britain, it was once largely accepted that any young worker wanting to find the best jobs, the best opportunities and the best quality of life, a move south to London and its outskirts was necessary.

But things in recent years have changed.

Manchester in England’s north-west is fast becoming the city young British workers are choosing to migrate to above any other. Generation Y, workers born between 1980 and 2000, now accounts for 22% of the city’s population, more than four times the national average.

This proliferation in the number of young people that now call Manchester home is already increasing the emphasis on the need for build-to-rent property investment in the city, as outlined in our recent investment whitepaper.

So what specifically is drawing Generation Y to Manchester and establishing the city as the new go-to place to work and live?[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”6456″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

A city with jobs in Generation Y-dense industries

More of the typical jobs Generation Y want to do can now be found outside of London than ever before – and, as the country’s second largest economy, Manchester is one of the biggest regional employers.

Archetypal Generation Y’ers – driven, career-focused and constantly seeking professional development – are naturally drawn to Manchester’s bustling financial and professional sectors, in which 70,000 new jobs will be available to them over the next decade.

Manchester is also the only UK city that can connect globally without going through the capital, thanks to investment to the tune of £500 million in its tech infrastructure. The north-west now has a tech and digital scene that other cities both in Britain and across Europe envy, with the kind of jobs available that simply wouldn’t have existed 20 years ago.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
