Job Prospects in Leeds

Leeds Civic Hall

With a population of three quarters of a million, it's not perhaps too surprising that the city has earned itself a place on the world stage for its economic performance. Leeds is considered so important on a global basis that it's been listed as a Gamma World City alongside the likes of St Petersburg, Lyon and Indianapolis. Its reputations rests on the number of finance and banking jobs and its key geographic position in the centre of the UK. As part of the metropolitan borough, Leeds links up with Bradford and Huddersfield in West Yorkshire to maximise resources and make it a must-be location for many international banks and institutions. The presence of three Universities also provides a knowledge-base that's second to none.

Finance and Banking

The Yorkshire Bank covers more than just Yorkshire -and indeed the UK. It's now an international bank but hasn't neglected its Yorkshire roots. Leeds is just one major employment centre for this bank, offering you a route into the world of finance. There are more than 30 national and international banks offering career paths for graduates and for those with a determination to succeed in the complex world of banking. Many other finance and insurance institutions (such as PricewaterhoueCoopers) are also based in Leeds offering slightly different careers within the world of finance.


Sulzer Pumps is just one of the larger of 700 engineering firms based in or around Leeds. Nearly 40,000 people are employed in manufacturing in Leeds making it the second largest employer for manufacturing outside London. Such firms offer not just jobs for engineers. Graduates are often sought for their business administration or marketing skills. Watch out as well for apprenticeships in this industry which can favour vocational qualifications as much as academic ones.
