Derby was one of the crucibles of Britain’s Industrial Revolution: a sleepy market town was transformed almost overnight into a major manufacturing centre, producing everything from silk, to bone china trains and Rolls-Royce aircraft engines.
Derby is a city that is undergoing a period of transition and redevelopment that will ensure its growing appeal as an ideal place to live and work, having received significant investment in the last few years thanks to a major regeneration plan. This will include a new hi-tech business park, which will further strengthen its role in the aerospace, rail and automotive industries. Other key industry sectors in the region include software and IT, Creative and Nunclear research & development. All of this means Derby has one of the highest skilled workforces in the UK and boasts the highest average salary outside London.
The city centre has a rich mix of arts, tourism and cultural venues that will appeal to all tastes, along with a passionate sporting tradition, in particular for football, cricket and motor racing.
