Why the West Midlands?

The West Midlands region contains the seven metropolitan boroughs of Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull and Walsall. These areas contain a high density of businesses and offer fantastic graduate job opportunities. On top of that, the area is rich in history and culture, providing a large enough range of lifestyle activities to keep anyone entertained!

Birmingham is probably the most famous of the all the region’s cities and has been highly acclaimed for the amount of regeneration activity that has been undertaken over the last ten years. Few people now think about Birmingham without connecting it to the shopping mecca that is the Bull Ring with its iconic Selfridges store or the NEC Arena, home to many extravaganzas throughout the year. The former post office sorting building is also worth a visit, if not just for a visit to Harvey Nichols but also to eat and drink in a multitude of bars and restaurants.

Wolverhampton, Dudley and Sandwell are the major towns located in the industrial heartland of the Black Country where manufacturing still plays a key role. Many companies in this region are embracing graduates to help improve the performance of their businesses. Coventry is often linked with the county of Warwickshire as the two share a border and like Birmingham, the city has under gone significant regeneration over recent years.

Solihull has a growing commercial centre as well as being home to the only John Lewis store across the whole of the West Midlands which makes it worth a visit for that reason alone! A mere 15 minute train journey away from the centre of Birmingham, this medium sized town is an ideal residential location and commuters feature heavily on the transport routes between the two.

The West Midlands region has an excellent mixture of industry sectors that could satisfy the most eclectic of tastes.
