Bratislava ranked 65th out of 100 cities around the globe for finding a job. The study, published by relocation experts from Movinga, evaluates employment opportunities based on economic strength, living standards and the inclusion of women, youth and expats.

The Slovak capital received a total score of 5.793 points.

The best city to find a job is Boston, the US, due to the strong economy, high disposable income and good opportunities for women, while Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is the best city for young people to find a job, with a booming startup scene and high expat employment rate, the study finds.

How was the study conducted?

As the first instalment in a series of research projects looking at Cities of Opportunity, the study focused on employment, with career advancement beng one of the main reasons for relocation, Movinga stated in a press release.

It analysed OECD countries, since they have the most available and comparable employment statistics, and then a few key trending cities such as Singapore and Hong Kong, which are booming with job opportunities.

The research tackled three key areas; economic strength for startups and established businesses, standard of living, including disposable income and healthcare benefits, and the inclusion of women, youth and expats in the workforce.

Within these categories, 14 micro factors including healthcare expenditure, immigration levels and the gender wage gap were analysed to determine a score for each category. The final index ranks the top 100 cities by the total job opportunity score, from highest to lowest, revealing the score for each individual factor, the press release reads.
