Recruitment Agencies based in Devon, South West, UK
Located in the South West of the UK, Devon is the country’s third largest county (by area) and home to nearly 30,000 businesses. Due to its position by the coast, Tourism and Hospitality recruitment is particularly high, however careers are available across a broad range of sectors.
Large concentrations of recruitment agencies can be found throughout the county, with Torquay, Exeter and Plymouth being popular settlements for local Devon recruiters. A number of staffing firms can also be found in Newton Abbot - a market town close to the Penn Inn Flyover. The M5 and A38 makes agencies easily accessible to employers and candidates.
Career prospects in the county
Tourism is a leading industry for job vacancies and Torbay, often referred to as the English Riviera, draws the largest number of visitors. The borough encompasses the seaside towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, with the latter boasting such popular tourist attractions as Torquay Harbour and the Babbacombe Theatre. Part-time and seasonal employment is high as a result, while student jobs are also common.
Employment consultancies in Devon will support other strong industries in the area such as Agriculture, Food & Drink, and increasingly, the Financial Services. Despite the national decline within Agriculture, Farming remains a key contributor to the local economy. Additionally, there are numerous multi-sector recruiting companies, meaning that Devon’s Driving, Industrial and IT sectors are also well served.
