The skyline, the mix of the Gothic with the new, the incredible talent of its people, the buzz of the city – what’s not to like about Manchester. We at Harold Sharp have been here for a century, but here are just some of the reasons we love Manchester more than ever:

  • Four universities give us a stream of talent; 2018 saw more graduates moving from London to Manchester than leaving.
  • Greater Manchester’s digital industries employ an estimated 70,000 people.
  • 2018 saw more was being built in Manchester than in Chicago or Los Angeles, according to Deloitte. Right now there are around 2 million sq ft of office space under construction.
  • According to the Daily Telegraph, the creative, digital and tech sector contributes £4.1 billion to the Manchester region’s economy.

“We like being at the centre of all this tech. Our business is digital and we are striving to apply that digital know-how to our client’s businesses.”
