A city of 1,000 trades and a wealth of opportunities
Birmingham is not only the UK’s largest city outside London, but also one of the country’s biggest financial centres. The relocation of firms such as Deutsche Bank and HSBC will increase the number of affluent professionals making their home here. The diversity of the city’s economy is supported by its reputation as a hub for creative industries and it is among the UK’s fastest growing centres fordigital media ventures.
There is a wealth of opportunities for companies seeking to expand or invest in Birmingham. The city has exceptional connections to local, national and international destinations. It lies at the heart of the UK’s road network and boasts an international airport serving 9 million passengers per year to 140 direct and scheduled charter routes. The proposed HS2 rail link will potentially cut travel time between Birmingham and London to under 50 minutes.
