With three universities and several educational institutions, there are many opportunities for lecturers, teachers and teaching assistants in the city’s ‘Knowledge Quarter’. The city’s rich architectural base helped the city become the second most filmed city in the UK, meaning there are many opportunities in media. Media jobs involve film technicians, film producers, actors and sound crews. Tourism plays a large part in the local economy. Over 64 million people visit the city each year because of The Beatles, Liverpool Football Club, Everton Football Club as well as other popular sights. Hotel managers, tour guides and executive chefs help make tourism in Liverpool top tier.

Hospitals and clinics are employing nurses, GP’s and specialist doctors.
