Reading And Oxford 'Best Places' To Work

Reading and Oxford are among the best places in the country to work, according to a new study.

The list is best on how easy it is to get a job, affordability of housing and employee satisfaction.

London has been left outside of the top 20.

Glassdoors say Reading makes it to number 7:

Reading - Population: 218,705; Median base salary: £43,000; Average home value: £430,503; Hot jobs: sales associate, sales rep, technical support engineer.

Oxford is at number 17:

Oxford - Population: 159,994; Median base salary: £32,000; Average home value: £502,452; Hot jobs: personal banking adviser, project manager, research scientist.

Cambridge is said to be the best place in the country to work.

``Cambridge has long had a reputation for one of Britain's most loved cities, but now it's emerged as a prime spot for high-tech companies which is clearly having an impact on where people decide to live and work,'' said Dr Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor's Chief Economist.
