With such a rich and diverse Automotive industry spanning all corners of the UK, we recognise that many of our candidates are willing to relocate in order to secure their dream role. While this can seem daunting at first, we’ve put together an area guide covering the key regions to give you as much information as possible in order to make an informed decision.

London is the capital and largest city of both England and the United Kingdom. It is considered to be one of the world's most important global cities and has been termed the world’s most powerful, most desirable, most influential, most visited, most expensive and most popular for work, city in the world. According to a recent study London is the Most Expensive City to live and work in, beating New York, Hong Kong and Paris and proving to be 70% more expensive than San Francisco. Despite these figures, more than 8 million people live here, so what is the draw?

London is both a cultural and commercial hub. It has a diverse mix of people and cultures with more than 300 different languages spoken across the region.  You will never be short of things to do in London no matter what you’re interested in, after all 80% of all UK Michelin Starred restaurants are situated in London. There are an estimated 241 theatres and more than 250 registered art galleries and museums. So that’s entertainment covered? Sport, we all know about London 2012, and the stadia remaining, but also there are 13 Professional Football Clubs along with both Wembley Stadium and of course Twickenham, home to England Rugby. For lovers of scenery, Hampstead Heath offers one of the UK’s most beautiful spaces and both Royal and Public parks are dotted throughout the Capital so leisure time is well covered.

Living in London can be very expensive; however with average salaries being considerably higher than the UK average, this can soften the blow. London’s economy, as it is never tires of boasting, props up the whole of the UK – and grows at twice the national rate. Transport links throughout London are good, when there are no disruptions, with Road, Rail (both overland and underground) and Tram lines, getting around should be relatively easy. Having said that, commute times can be high and at peak times traffic can seem like it is at a stand-still and rail travel can be arduous.
