Leeds came very high up the list for best places to work.

Job research website Glassdoor has pulled together a list of what it thinks are the best towns and cities in the UK to work in.


Places of all sizes all over the UK make it onto the list, but surprisingly London is not one of them.

Glassdoor's new job report measures three key features to determine an area's "jobs score," which is marked out of five:

  • How easy it is to get a job (hiring opportunity).
  • How affordable it is to live there (cost of living).
  • How satisfied employees are working there (overall job satisfaction).

Glassdoor's chief economist Dr. Andrew Chamberlain said in a statement:

"These results are a reminder that although there are more jobs in London and employees are generally pretty satisfied, it is a competitive place to work and an expensive place to live. Towns and cities such as Nottingham, Leeds, and Reading offer decent salaries and job prospects combined with a lower cost of living which means your money will go further, you can save, and still and have a good quality of life."


Here are the UK town and cities that made the list:
