• Media City


Salford sits at the heart of Greater Manchester in the north west of England, with a rapidly growing population of more than 245,000 people.

Over 9,000 businesses employing 120,500 people are located in the city, which is home to one of the UK's most exciting developments - MediaCityUK, home of the BBC, ITV and numerous independent creative, digital and media businesses.

Salford not only has a growing national reputation as a leader in the creative, digital and new media sector, it also has a strong financial and professional services sector, as well as a steady manufacturing base. Salford’s employment growth over the next decade is expected to outpace the national average, with an additional 33,000 jobs expected to be created by 2026.

With excellent road and public transport links to all parts of the UK, the city is well placed as a visitor and commercial centre with Manchester International Airport, gateway to over 200 international destinations, just a few miles away.

In the context of the Northern Powerhouse and Greater Manchester Devolution, Salford is exceptionally well placed to exploit future growth opportunities and deliver continued jobs, investment and regeneration for the benefit of our increasingly diverse communities.
