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.
