Birmingham one of the happiest cities to live and work

12 July 2019

The UK’s leading independent job board, CV-Library, has found that Birmingham is one of the happiest UK cities to live and work in.

In their survey, they found that 58.7 per cent of Brits do feel happy every day, with this figure rising to 61.3 per cent for professionals working in Birmingham.

The study of 2,000 working professionals comes just in time for what leading psychologist, Dr Cliff Arnall, claims the 14 July is the happiest day of the year, and reveals that workers in certain cities are some of the happiest in the UK.

The top 10 list includes:

  1. Brighton – 86.4 per cent
  2. Swansea – 75 per cent
  3. Glasgow – 70.6 per cent
  4. York – 66.7 per cent
  5. Lincoln – 63.2 per cent
  6. Belfast – 62.5 per cent
  7. Edinburgh – 62.5 per cent
  8. Birmingham – 61.3 per cent
  9. London – 61 per cent
  10. Manchester – 60 per cent

Lee Biggins, founder and chief executive of CV-Library comments: “Commonly known as the UK’s second city, Birmingham is constantly thriving and home to some fantastic employment opportunities, so I’m not surprised to see it make the list.

“A huge range of factors can contribute to our happiness levels and feeling good in ourselves makes it easier to achieve our goals, whether that’s in our personal or professional lives.”

According to the data, a further 56.7 per cent of Brits enjoy their job, with this figure rising to 60.6 per cent for professionals in Birmingham.
