Recruitment Agencies in Oxfordshire
Encompassing cities and towns such as Oxford, Banbury and Abingdon, Oxfordshire is a south-east county located just over 55 miles from Central London. Although the area is perhaps most well renowned for its Education and Tourism sectors, Oxfordshire-based recruitment agencies will commonly be in demand to fill vacancies in alternative fields such as IT, Retail and the Financial Services.
Oxford is the principal settlement in the county and there is a large concentration of recruitment agencies based in close proximity to the high street, as well as the River Thames. To the north of Oxford is Bicester, a market town with a number of employment firms located around the market square area. Other popular locations for recruiters in Oxfordshire include the town of Thame, Abingdon high street and Oxford Science Park.
Economic overview and salaries
Oxfordshire has a total population of 672,500 (2014) and 365,300 of these are thought of as being economically active. Of the economically active, 78% are in employment and this is a higher proportion than the UK and South East average. The median weekly pay for workers in Oxfordshire is also higher than of the surrounding areas, coming in at £578.40.
Key industries and employers
The University of Oxford has helped developed Oxfordshire into a centre for Education and recruiting demands are therefore common for Teachers, Lecturers and Support Staff. The Public Sector as a whole accounts for nearly 30% of jobs in Oxfordshire and some of the other major employers include Horton General Hospital and Oxfordshire County Council. The Creative industries also support the local job market and cover more than 3000 businesses. Publishing is one of the leading fields in this area and is helped greatly by the Oxford University Press, which is the world's largest Printing & Publishing firm. Permanent, temporary and contract positions are also frequently available with Tourism and Technology employers.
