For companies considering a Relocation to Birmingham, this cosmopolitan city offers a wide array of opportunities and has always stood at the centre of the UK’s economy. Birmingham relocation is becoming an increasingly popular decision for businesses, as the cost of living in London continues to increase dramatically, relocating to Birmingham has become a more appealing and financially viable option. As the UK’s second largest city and the business and administrative capital of the West Midlands, combined with its advanced economic structure and vibrant blend of cultures, Birmingham presents an impressive range of opportunities; from business and financial services, to exhibitions, conventions and tourism as well as the traditional manufacturing industries.
Ranked as a ‘Global City’, commerce in Birmingham has shown few signs of fatigue over recent years, and an increasing number of businesses are taking advantage of the opportunities that the city presents. Historically, Birmingham’s economy relied on the manufacturing and engineering industries and whilst the city is still host to numerous businesses within these areas, over recent years Birmingham’s economy has become increasingly reliant on the service sector. Birmingham has served as the launchpad for some of the world’s most influential businesses. One of the UK’s largest banks, Lloyd’s, was founded in Birmingham, and companies such as Dunlop Tires and Associated Architects continue to use the city as their headquarters today. Birmingham has demonstrated throughout the years that it has the ability to facilitate businesses and allow them to grow.
As well as offering impressive business opportunities, Birmingham offers employees relocating to the city with children, a vast selection of schooling facilities, from outstanding independent schools such as King Edward’s to excellent state schools including Lordswood Girls and Heath Mount Primary School.

Employees can occupy themselves with an array of activities and places to visit in Birmingham, the city boasts a number of popular shopping centres such as the Bullring and the Mailbox, vibrant dining districts including Brindley Place as well as a selection of diverse cultural areas including Birmingham’s very own China Town. Whilst Birmingham offers all the comprehensive facilities one would expect from a major city, it is also surrounded by beautiful countryside, the Lickey Hills and the Clent Hills are situated just to the south west of the city and to the north of the city, the Peak District is within striking distance. Within the city itself, Birmingham has over 8000 acres of public parks, including the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Cannon Hill Park.
