While there is always a mysterious ‘they’ spewing recommendations and suggestions as in ‘They say this is the best’ when ‘they’ say it’s hard to get a job, ‘they’ have no idea what ‘they’ are talking about and no idea where to look. Wow, that’s a lot of ‘theys’.

There are always jobs available. It’s the way of the world. No matter the city and no matter the people living there. Jobs are everywhere. You just have to no what to look to find them.

A lot of companies take to advertising in a variety of mediums. Some of them prefer social media while others prefer the tried-and-true papers of old. Combing various sources and talking with a number of employment specialists, I’ve come up with this list with the hope that it will help at least one lowly reader out there to find a job.


Founded in 1832 this company has managed to ride the tides of changing tastes and styles and continues to remain relevant in today’s markets for even the ficklest of customers. They boast revenues of close to a billion dollars toting their slogan “be exceptional, be Harrods”. Hey, don’t fault them for it, the slogan fits.

Harrods wants to be the world’s leading department store, specializing in luxury brands of all kinds and they are closing in on that very goal. The company not only offers great products at reasonable prices but also provides an enviable working environment. The atmosphere is both friendly and casual which for a department store is quite rare in London. They also stress employees have a balance between work-life and home-life.

Founded in 1983, the company is headquartered in Manchester, England and specializes in Employment Law and Safety and Health. They have an incredibly impressive record of helping over 32,000 businesses since their inception. Quite impressive indeed.

Although applicants need to be well versed in both legal knowledge and HR to land a job with Peninsula, it is more than worth it. The staff benefits are out of this world not to mention the career opportunities once allowed inside the gilded gates.



Founded in 1872, Unilever is a wonderful company that not only knows how to be successful in today’s harrowing markets, but also how to be kind to the environment.

Now, this company cares about the community and the planet.

A privately-held company, Royal London specializes in investments, pensions, and mutual life insurance. With a revenue of nearly 5 billion, they are here to stay, just ask their customers. There’s plenty of them. They have helped more than 6 million customers since their inception in 1861.
It should be noted that Royal London is owned by its customers. There are no shareholders which means the business interests and the client’s interests remain the same. This company allows the people involved to make a difference, why not be one of them?
Employee benefits are outstanding as is the office space and overall mood of the office.


Metro Bank

Compared to some of the other companies on this list, Metro Bank is considerably younger and shorter in the tooth. Founded in 2010, this company has done what no one thought possible. From its inception, this company has revolutionized the British banking system which was considered an impossibility at one time.

Aiming to top 2 million customers before the end of 2020, they are always looking to improve and expand their reach.

Believe it or not, Metro Bank actually doesn’t just have customers, but actually have fans of the service. That’s unheard of. A bank with fans?

There are great career opportunities with Metro Bank. Remarkably with the first twelve to eighteen months. 25% of employees are promoted. There are numerous benefits and wonderful office space within which to work.

Metro Bank is always looking for IT specialists, software developers, and fintech engineers to help them stay ahead of the curve of the burgeoning mobile banking wave that is taking the world by storm. If those positions interest you, give them a look.
