Recruitment Agencies based in Berkshire
Based in the South East of the UK, Berkshire is considered one of the home counties and includes areas such as Reading, Slough and Bracknell. The county is located just to the west of London and the local economy largely reflects that of the capital. Recruitment agencies in the area will therefore commonly fill high salary jobs and often recruit London commuters.
Recruitment agencies in Berkshire are usually located within the most heavily populated settlements - including Maidenhead, Bracknell, Wokingham and Reading. The latter is divided from the rest of the county by the River Kennet. The area is home to both multi-sector and specialist employment firms, that will try to fill permanent, temporary and contract jobs in Berkshire. Some of the specialist agencies recruit within industries such as Accounting, IT and Engineering. Access to agencies are helped by the M4 corridor, which connects Berkshire to London.

Berkshire has a population of 863,900. Employment rates in the county's main districts range from 73.6% to 79.2%, with Bracknell Forest and Windsor & Maidenhead having the highest figures (according to official labour market statistics).
