Birmingham is commonly known as the 'second city' of the UK, with more than a million residents in the city and 3.6 million across the wider metropolitan area. The city has a very competitive jobs market. There are 734,000 residents of working age, according to the ONS, but only around 600,000 jobs in Birmingham, equivalent to four jobs for every five people.
