Recruitment Agencies based in Lancashire, North West, UK

Lancashire is a county in the North West of England, with a population of roughly 1.4 million people. The county made a name for itself during the Industrial Revolution when, during the 19th century, almost 85% of cotton manufacturing occurred in here.

Today, the majority of all employment in the area comes from the service industries, although manufacturing also retains a strong presence in the county and is accountable for 16% of jobs. Lancashire County Council, based in Preston is the area's most significant employer, with the public administration, health and education sectors contributing a quarter of the area's employment.

Another important employer in the county is BAE Military Air Solutions which has 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 Lancashire.

The county town of Lancashire is Lancaster, a culturally historic location that offers such attractions as Lancaster Castle, Ashton Memorial and The Grand Theatre. Falling within the larger City of Lancaster district, the area has a population of nearly 140K people and provides some of the leading job prospects outside of Preston, Blackpool and Blackburn. The city is home to one of the UK's leading universities (Lancaster University) and this has made the area an academic centre that also offers top opportunities to technology, communications and research professionals.

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 recruitment agencies is recommended for both job seekers and employers in Lancashire.
