What is the job market like in Manchester (UK)?

This question is half due to curiosity, and half due to thoughts about moving there in the next 6 months or so. I just moved to London, and while I love it here, I'm wondering about job prospects in other (less expensive) cities. I've been to Manchester and I loved my time there, and have always considered it an appealing option.
I'm a 23-year-old Canadian with a "youth mobility" visa (good for 2 years). I have a BA and a BEd. I am open to all sorts of work (i.e. not limited to teaching). What kind of job market can I expect in Manchester?
How do you figure out what the job market looks like somewhere? Beyond looking at job ads online, how do I know if moving somewhere is feasible, or if I'll be looking for a job for months and months?
Any help, suggestions, or general advice welcome.
