Life in Liverpool
As soon as you arrive here, you’ll feel it. A place that’s buzzing. A place that is creating something special. Welcome to Liverpool.
We have 486,000 residents, with almost 313,000 being between the age of 16-59 years old. In the wider functional area, our catchment increases to 2.5 million people, of which 1.4 million are of working age. Liverpool is the fastest growing UK city outside of London.
Quality of life matters here and is the reason why our companies have such low rates of staff turnover. The population of our vibrant city centre has more than doubled in the last decade, fuelled by a rise in young professional jobs.
