Living in West Midlands

Working life

With a large number of schools and universities available throughout the region, it’s only natural that a wealth of career opportunities follow. Whether you’re a recent grad or are looking to start the next chapter of your career, you won’t struggle to find work in a sector you’re passionate about when buying a home.

The West Midlands, is home to 53,000 financial businesses and professional services, the largest number outside of London. Manufacturing is one of its strongest sectors, with one third of British cars being made here, but tech and digital companies also thrive. Fintech and gaming are big players for the region -  in fact, 25% of UK’s computer games are developed in this location alone.

But if you’d rather take the helm and run your own business, then you’re in the right place. Birmingham in particular has attracted many entrepreneurs, with many finding success within the city and beyond. If you’re keen to make your mark from the comforts of your own home, then a West Midland home is for you.

Family fun

But it’s not all work and no play here in the West Midlands. There’s plenty to enjoy with all the family that can be easily accessed from your new build. Favourites include West Midland Safari Park, Cadbury’s World and watching one of the many, many sporting events.

You’ll also quickly fill your calendar with the different festivals and events that take place throughout the year. Grab a pint at one of the world’s largest St Patrick’s Day celebrations, watch dizzying dance shows and breathtaking theatre performances or sit back and admire the fireworks at Chinese New Year.

And, while the West Midlands are known for their industrial settings, the region also has green spaces, too. Take a stroll along meandering rivers and canals, hike up and down rolling hills or discover hidden treasures like ancient castles and remains.
