Recruitment Agencies based in Essex, East Anglia, UK

Stretching from south west London to the remote coastline to the north, Essex is one of the Home Counties and encompasses towns such as Chelmsford, Harlow, Southend-on-Sea and Braintree.

One of the largest employers in the region is the British Army, which has one of its major UK bases in Colchester. Recruitment agencies feature many public sector jobs, which account for the largest proportion of the county's employment quota. The University of Essex and the NHS provide a range of jobs, as does a developing IT and tourism sector.

The area's position in relation to the UK capital means it has profited from the rise in financial and banking industries thanks to the relocation of firms looking for more cost effective premises. London Southend Airport has boosted the economy after it's expansion and there are plans to build a medical school within Southend's University campus. Stansted is another major airport in the district which employs more than 10,000 staff.

Situated just 40 miles outside of London is Braintree, another popular Essex location for businesses and candidates who are looking to take advantage of the town's proximity to Europe's business capital. Braintree is favoured by London workers for it's low cost of living, however the area is also a strong destination for employment in its own right. Freeport shopping park is a retail hub and offers careers across more than 85 stores. This helps contribute to a booming retail and wholesale industry, which while performing poorly on a national level, is doing well locally. Growth industries in the town include construction and transport, however manufacturing jobs are in decline.

The county's employment rate is above the national average at 80.3%, while the average weekly wage is £503.60.
