Recruitment Agencies based in Lancashire, North West, UK

Lancashire is a county in the North West of England, with a population of roughly 1,461,400. The county made a name for itself during the Industrial Revolution when, during the 19th century, almost 85% of cotton manufacturing occurred in Lancashire.

These days, 74.4% of all employment comes from the service industries, which is about 10% lower than the national average, allowing for the rate of employment accounted for by manufacturing which provides 16.2% of all employment in the county, a significant increase in the national average of 10.2%. Lancashire County Council, based in Preston is the area's most significant employer, with the Public Administration, Health and Education sector accounting for 25.8% of the area's employment. The rate of employment for Distribution, Hotels, and Restaurants is almost exactly on par with the rest of the country at 23.2%.

Another important employer in the county is BAE Military Air Solutions with major sites in Warton and Samlesbury. Contributing to the construction sector is Eric Wright Construction and in retail both Booths and Matalan have their headquarters in the county, as well as various stores and outlets across the region. Crown Paints, Leyland Trucks, and National Savings and Investment are all significant recruiters and employers in the area.

As in other areas of the country finding employment can be tricky, as can finding the right candidate for the job and as such the use of specialist recruitment agencies is recommended for both job seekers and employers in Lancashire.
