Half a million people live in the city of Manchester - but there are 2.6m in the wider metropolitan county of Greater Manchester which takes in Salford, Bolton, Wigan, Rochdale and a number of other boroughs. This puts the city of Manchester at the heart of an industrial and economic powerhouse generating employment and revenue for the north-west. One of the city's biggest employers is the Co-operative Group, currently building an impressive new head office in the city centre to house its 3,000 employees who work in both its retail and finance sectors. The Co-op building is itself part of an £800m project to redevelop the 20-acre Noma area of the city centre. It's just one exciting development ensuring the city - like its football clubs - stays in the premier division.

The city of Manchester was born out of the industrial revolution but its primary economy is now based in the service sector. The City Council itself (providing residents with education, health, housing and the infrastructure to service their needs) employs more than 19,000 staff. The distribution sector is also key to the city's economic well-being, taking advantage of Manchester's pivotal location in the north-west with good access to road, rail and air links.
The thriving city centre is home to a number of shopping centres such as the Arndale Centre off the pedestrianised Market Street area. The Arndale alone hosts 240 stores covering fashion, electricals, health and beauty. Manchester also has a vibrant nightlife providing jobs in both the retail and leisure industries.
It's an astonishing statistic but 98.7 per cent of the employers in Manchester have fewer than 200 employees. That means a diverse range of employers at centres such as Spinningfields and Corridor Manchester.
