Archive: Southampton named one of the happiest cities to work in the UK

According to a survey by business psychologists OPP, Southampton has been named the ninth happiest city to work in the UK. This was reported in the Guardian in February*.

The survey questioned more than 2,500 workers about their levels of job satisfaction. It also found that the highest levels of satisfaction were found among those working in architecture, engineering, building, sales, media and marketing**. The happiest place to work in the UK was found to be Norwich.

What this means for home owners and home buyers

Adam Nanson, Managing Director at Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“Our offices are based in Salisbury near Southampton, so we have quite a few clients in the area. I also grew up in Southampton and so I know what a great place it is to live and work.

“When somewhere has positive job opportunities, it often follows that property in the region can be in high demand and at a high premium. In fact, we recently reported that the New Forest, which surrounds Southampton, is the least affordable National Park in the UK to live.”
