An Aussie moving to the UK

If you are from the actual Gold Coast and would miss the sea (and surfing) for instance then Hull or York would be the obvious choices for the Yorkshire coast. I am from the coast and you could never put me "inland" now

If you are thinking of Manchester send me a PM - a mate of mine moves into an agency recruitment job over there next week

York must be forty miles from the sea!

Anywhere in Yorkshire

It's called "Gods Own County" for a reason ;)

In all seriousness and without bias Leeds is an excellent city, smaller but more stylish than Manchester and with far better transport links

/insert bias

Naturally you can have the best of all lives and move to Huddersfield, the birthplace of the game

Excellent stadium, competitive team (till Easter) superb transport links being 20 mins from Leeds, 30 mins from Manchester and 40 mins from York and on the doorstep of some of the most beautiful countryside in the world

Oh and we have the best ale ;)

About thirty years ago, Kirklees Council published a streetmap of its area. On the back cover was an advert for a firm (Brook Motors?) superimposed on a tilted globe so that Huddersfield was right at the centre hub of the world surface.

:D

Haha, that's true. I didn't want to annoy people. For the record, I have a degree in Human Resources and have been working in that industry for the past 6 years.

I spoke to my brother who lived in York back in 2008, and he reccomended recruitment agencies as the best avenues for work, and the banking/financial sector as a good source of employment. He was also a keen York City Knights and York City FC fan while he was living there :)

If you do come to York, come down and give our amature club York Lokomotive a hand, as we need all we can get as us young ens are now sort of running club.

I'd move to Australia if I came from Lancashire.

Obviously I'd have to steal a loaf of bread first.

Goldcoaster - there was a book out a few years ago, called "###### Towns", might be worth a quick glance before you decide (I'd take it with a pinch of salt though as it was a semi-pi$$ take)......

Note Hull's ranking!!

If you're in the business of hiring/firing it's prob worth bearing in mind that most of the UK (bar London) is financially bolloxed so if you're in London you may well be doing some hiring but everywhere else it's likely that you'd be drafted in to do the firing

Somewhere down south then.

The place you want to move to has to be Cumbria (west Cumbria), the beautiful lake district on your doorstep, it is also a rugby league hot spot, albeit no super league club but we've managed with out a super league club for 15 years now but the game still thrives, ive also heard that sellafield are employing. What more could you ask for, nuclear waste, natural beauty (as in the lakes) :O:lol: , and rugby league.... :D

And you'd need the courage of your convict(ions).
