Recruitment Agencies based in Cornwall, South West, UK

The county of Cornwall is located in the south west of England. Surrounded by the English Channel and the Celtic Sea, the area is home to miles of beautiful beaches and cliffs and boasts countless country gardens, museums and historical sites.

The Cornish economy relies heavily on tourism, which provides around a quarter of the jobs in the county. Those wishing to capitalise on the seasonal economy are often advised by recruitment agencies to apply for jobs in advance of the summer season.

Aside from tourism, fishing and agriculture are important industries in Cornwall, with the berry production firm, Boddingtons, being one of the county's main employers of summer fruit pickers. China clay extraction used to be an important industry in the area. However, increased mechanisation has resulted in a decrease in employment openings in this sector. The mining of tin and copper also used to provide considerable employment openings in the county, but today the Camborne School of Mines, a recognised mining and geology centre, is one of the only employers of experts in this field.

While Cornwall is remote, it is home to some of the world's quickest high-speed fibre optic cables and this is one of the main reasons why the county's self-employment rates are considerably higher than the Great Britain average.

Employment figures for this county are closely linked to the seasons, with Cornwall's summer unemployment rate being as low as 1.8%. Income figures are also affected by the seasons. However, full-time staff can expect to receive an average weekly salary of around £381.
