Why more and more people are choosing Leeds as THE place to work

29th November 2017


Leeds is continuously evolving, so much that it’s quickly becoming one of the best, and most sought-after cities to live and work in Europe, and here’s why!

It embraces start-up companies

Leeds is great for start-up companies and SMEs, as there are tons of opportunities for training and advice from entrepreneurs. Leeds also offers great access to funding, and strives to help small to medium sized businesses, so you will never be stuck for advice, or places to hire for meetings or as office space.

It’s the biggest financial hub outside of London

With over 30 national and international banks, Leeds is the biggest financial hub outside of London. The Financial Quarter is located perfectly for public transport, and is surrounded by handy cafes, bars, and restaurants – perfect for more informal meetings, client lunches or just after work socialising.

It’s passionate about mental health

Leeds cares about mental health, which hand-in-hand makes for better business. The better you take care of your mental well-being, the more successful you will be. So, it’s a great place to feel supported and to be your best possible self at work.

It has great suburbs

It isn’t just the city centre that’s full of character, the suburbs are exciting too, such as Chapel Allerton, Roundhay and Horsforth, and are all well connected to the city centre. Horsforth, Leeds’ most popular suburb has become the perfect hub for young independents looking to move out of the centre. It’s vibrant, quirky, and a great place to settle down.

It’s great after work too

Not only is Leeds an enjoyable place to work, it’s an enjoyable place in general to live! Packed full of bars, restaurants, parks, theatres and an arena, you’ll never be bored.
