Manchester will see huge growth in 2013 according to latest statistics in both the creative and financial industries. Figures have shown that financial services sector and creative industries to be the most likely to drive expansion in Manchester’s urban areas over the next decade, whilst the job seekers market has also made slight improvements already.
Predictions say that within the next 10 years, over 45,000 jobs will be created by the financial sector in Greater Manchester while creative industries will be responsible for the development of approximately 23,000 posts.
The Manchester Monitor has confirmed that job creation over the next decade in finance will account for 40% of Manchester’s Gross Value Added. Last December’s “English Business Survey”, from the Department for Business, Skills and Innovation, demonstrated a third quarter rise in output from 75% of Manchester based firms in comparison to the previous quarter.
