Recruitment Agencies based in Herefordshire, Welsh Borders, UK

Best known for being one of the most rural and sparsely populated counties in England, Herefordshire is dominated by agricultural jobs, with Cargill Meats and H.P Bulmers being two of the main private sector employers in the county. Herefordshire County Council and NHS are the county's largest public sector employers, collectively employing around 7,000 staff.

The majority of the employees here hold skilled trade or professional positions. Administrative and secretarial jobs are held by 10% of the workforce while sales and customer service jobs are held by just 6%. The average employee works 39.0 hours a week and receives weekly earnings of around £385.

Nearly half of all residents of working age are qualified to at least level 3 (equivalent to two or more A levels or an NVQ at Level 3). While skilled trade occupations, such as plumbing and building, account for a significant proportion of the vacancies in this county, many employers report skills gaps in these areas.

While Herefordshire enjoys a relatively low overall employment rate of 2.8%, its younger residents continue to struggle to find work following leaving school or college. However, as the country's economy strengthens, recruitment agencies anticipate that growth in the private sector will bring many more jobs for this age group.
