Moving to the UK in the construction field, what is the best city?
I currently live in Toronto, Canada and I am looking to change my environment and work experience by moving to the UK. I am in the construction field, I am currently a project coordinator with about a year experience and a college diploma. I want to live somewhere that is not too expensive where it won't be too difficult to find a job. I really like England but I'd like to live in the city or not too far from it, I'm a city boy. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
