Norwich has been named one of the top 20 best cities to work in the UK, according to research looking at everything from job satisfaction to pay.

The city, which has never before featured on the list by job site Glassdoor, came in at number 20 this year.

The list is compiled having looked at three factors: how easy it is to get a job, how affordable it is to live there, and job satisfaction.

The report also includes a breakdown of each town or city’s median pay, as well as current average home value, overall job satisfaction rating, population and number of current job openings.

Slough tops the rankings once again this year due to its high number of jobs compared to the local population and relatively high average salaries when compared to living costs in the area.

Other newcomers to the list include Gloucester, Chelmsford and Liverpool.

Last year’s runner-up, Manchester, dropped five places down to seventh, with some of the UK’s biggest cities not making the list – including Sheffield, Glasgow, Cardiff and London.
