About Birkenhead, Merseyside

Birkenhead is a town in Borough of Wirral, Merseyside. Located on the Wirral Peninsula, along the west bank of the River Mersey, within 10 minutes of Liverpool and close to Cheshire, North Wales and Greater Manchester.

At the 2011 census, it had a population of 88,818. More than 3 million people live inside a 45 minute peak-time commute area that employers recruit from, and around 7 million live within an hour. Close to 832,000 residents in this area are of working age.

Manufacturing employment is a strong component of the workforce profile, with proportionately more residents working in various manufacturing activities than in the region or across England as a whole. Firms include JLR, GM and Airbus.

More than a thousand offshore wind turbines are planned for the Irish Sea and Wirral is fast-becoming the main hub on the west coast of the country, for manufacturing, operations and maintenance. Cammell Laird, DONG Energy, Siemens and RWE are all active here.

Wirral is also a key location for Unilever's operations. Port Sunlight is home to its largest European manufacturing site, producing well-known laundry and homecare. Wirral is also home to one of Unilever's six global research and development centres, driving innovation in household brands.

Wirral provides a wide choice of education including several independent and grammar schools and a metropolitan college. The area is also located closely to several world-class universitesi in Liverpool and Manchester.

Wirral is highly connected for local businesses; all adjacent to the motorway network, putting you just a few minutes from Liverpool, Manchester in less than an hour and Birmingham in under two. Liverpool is one of the few cities outside London to have its own underground and commuter railway known as Merseyrail offering fast access around the city centre and to the Wirral, Southport and Chester amongst other places.

Fast trains to London take just over two hours from Chester and Liverpool. Two airports also connect the area – Liverpool John Lennon and Manchester with flights to more than 200 international destinations and a major air freight hub less than an hour’s drive away.
