moving to manchester
« on: 17:32:44, 09/12/05 »
We are thinking about moving to the manchester area and were wondering what the employmant scene is like? would it be hard to get into a job right away? what would renting a 3 bedroom house cost on average? what is it like to live there and what do you think that the biggest changes would be moving from canada? please email me soon at [email protected]

The employment scene depends on what you do for a living. In IT itís quite good, but in many other spheres thereís unemployment. Canít tell you how much a house would cost to rent unless you tell me in which part of the city youíd like to live. Some areas are more pricey than others.

I came to Manchester in 1951 when jobs were fairly easy to get. Iím actually a Yorkshireman but Iíve made my home here and to be honest Manchester provided me with opportunities that I never believed possible.

Thereís something about the place. Itís historic, itís vibrant, itís the city Iíll never leave because I love it dearly. Life is what you make it, so think hard before you make your decision. Itís a Ďyoungí city, so in youíre over 40 you might find work scarce.

My advice is have a holiday here and look around. Best wishes either way.

Don't tell the folks back home. You'll be crucified for being a traitor. ;)

Iíve already told íem on Sheffield Forum, but I claimed that all Yorkshiremen in Manchester arrived as missionaries and Iím one of the few they didnít eat!

Is it Manchester city centre you're looking at or the wider Greater Manchester area?
