Although officially a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, Salford is a city in its own right and, thanks to a series of amazing regeneration projects, has secured itself a reputation as the go-to spot in the UK for media professionals. Indeed, the creation of Salford’s MediaCityUK has been hailed as one of the best things to happen to the city in living memory, bringing with it a host of jobs, investment opportunities and shiny new buildings.
Only a quick stroll away from MediaCityUK is the gorgeous Salford Quays, an area in the city full of modern living spaces, hip bars, cultural attractions, offices and, of course, spirit-lifting views of the waterfront. This makes it an excellent place to work and spend time, with a host of great amenities only a doorstep away. Although many professionals working in offices around the quays are affiliated with media companies, there are also scores of others working in different sectors.
Whether you run a digital marketing agency or a property firm, you’re sure to be welcomed with open arms in this notoriously friendly city. Rest assured it’s no accident that the headquarters of the world-renowned BBC have ended up in this stylish part of Salford – it’s simply a fantastic place to live and work.
In terms of commutability, Salford has it all. As well as boasting a well-connected train station that sits right next to Salford University, the city contains a number of tram stops through which Manchester’s efficient Metrolink service passes. Professionals who live in the centre of Manchester, for example, can reach Salford Quays in well under half an hour.
