The best places in the UK to work, based on industry

Patrick Crowder

A study from the shared homeownership scheme Share to Buy shows the best places to work in the UK, depending on your industry of choice. By examining job listings, university courses, and company data compared against the population, Share to Buy has determined the hotspots for industry professionals looking to make a move.

Unsurprisingly, London has been named the best place to practice law. With 361 law firms popping up in London over the last year alone, alongside the prestige of firms such as Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, it is easy to see why London is the place to practice law. It is also a great city to study law, with 234 university courses available in the industry.

Of the industries examined, London only took the top spot for law, while Manchester is shown to be an ideal place for four separate industries. Manchester is the best place for Finance, Advertising, Engineering, and IT, according to Share to Buy, mostly because of its status as home to tech and banking giants as well as the BBC and ITV.

Edinburgh took the top spot for the Architecture industry, which is not hard to imagine when you look at the beautifully preserved historical buildings in the city. Students can attend the University of Edinburgh for both undergrad and MA courses in architecture, and job opportunities are abundant.
Glasgow has been named the best city for healthcare, due to the myriad opportunities in pharmaceuticals, health tech, and life sciences. On top of that, Glasgow is soon to receive £90 million in funding for new projects and research.
