Internet giant Google has been named the best place to work in the UK, offering benefits including free food and medical costs.

Jobs site Glassdoor used information from employees to draw up a list of the most recommended workplaces across the country, covering pay, benefits and other issues such as flexibility.

Google came on top, followed by Anglian Water, social housing group Bromford, Facebook and cloud computing company Salesforce.

In 6th place came Lookers, which is headquartered in Manchester and operates from a nationwide network of 157 motor retail outlets, and in 10th place was Homeserve, who have a base in Fulwood, Preston.

Robert Hohman, chief executive of Glassdoor,l said: "We know today's jobseekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities, to pay philosophy and more.

"The Glassdoor awards recognise employers that are truly best places to work because they're determined by those who really know best - the employees.

"Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage."
