(PRWEB UK) 12 November 2013
It has been reported in Expat Forum that the Quality of Life Index, carried out by Money Supermarket, looked at the 12 largest cities in the UK, assessing them based on a range of factors including property and rental costs, salaries, cost of living, jobs and life satisfaction. Bristol came out at the top of the poll with an average salary of £22,293 (above the national average of £21,473) as well as the highest disposable income. With the lowest unemployment rate, Edinburgh came in second with Cardiff stealing third place. Despite being the city with the highest salaries, London only came seventh.
Commenting on the results of the research, Claire Francis from Money Supermarket explained that “It’s clear that people living in different cities across the country have had to face different problems. It is interesting to see Bristol and Edinburgh topping the table of the best places to live in the UK.”
Providing worldwide removals as well as residential moves within the UK, the team at Interdean were naturally interested to see which cities provide the best quality of life from an expat point of view as well as for those already living in the country. A representative from the firm gives their views on the subject.
“Whether you’re just moving a few hours up the motorway or to an entirely new country, it is important to research things like salaries, employment levels and living costs. Whilst other more emotional factors like a friendly neighbourhood or nice surroundings can influence your final decision, it is important to consider your financial wellbeing as this is likely to have a significant impact on your overall experience of your new location.”
