An Overview of the Northern Jobs Market

Director at Valette’s Business School Manchester Ged Drugan, talks to the OA about the recent surge of economic growth in the northern region of England and the variety of opportunities available in the core cities – Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.

He has carried out consultancy and lecturing assignments in over 30 countries.
