Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Not much to add to what Stuart has already told you, except that there probably isn’t a great deal of difference in rates of pay and working hours. A lot would depend on the terms of your contract and any fringe benefits that went with the job.

The city of Birmingham is based in the Midlands, and Manchester is in the North West of England.

I can’t comment on the difference in rates, since I do not live in the UK, but my guess is that there is probably not much difference between them, and in any event the higher rate (if there is one) would be required because of the respective higher living costs.

One final comment: Manchester usually gets more rain than Birmingham!!

Philip, agree they should buy a Atlas, however one must be able to read and comprehend in order to make it work.Based on the quesiton, this might be beyond the author of the quesiton.
