Recruitment Agencies based in Home Counties

The home counties is a collection of settlements that surround Greater London. Although there is no official designation of counties, they are thought to include, amongst others, Berkshire, Essex, Kent, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Hertfordshire. These areas are linked socially and demographically, however recruitment across London's neighbouring counties remains diverse.

Recruitment agencies within the home counties contain a mixture of specialist employment firms and multi-sector recruiters. Due to the area's proximity to the UK capital, towns and cities such as Chelmsford and High Wycombe, fall within the London commuter belt. This means that many local agencies will work with candidates and employers outside of the home counties borders. As the economy and job market of the home counties is largely impacted by London, recruitment for high salary jobs is common.

Economic overview and salaries

The home counties are considered prosperous areas to live and average weekly earnings can range anywhere from £550 to £650, however salaries will depend on whether the job is on a permanent, temporary or contract figure. The latter figure is the weekly pay for Buckinghamshire (according to official labour market statistics), which is almost £120 higher than the national average. The rate of employment within the home counties is also typically higher than that of the UK average, lying between 73%-79%.

Key industries and employment

The Financial sector plays an important role within home counties employment, especially in Kent. Some of the most notable employers include Aviva, Lloyds Bank and DSH Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors - meaning that Accounting and Audit staff are frequently in demand. Growth in London and the surrounding areas has led to a stronger than average Construction sector, while Retail also hire a large percentage of the local workforce. The Lakeside Shopping Centre in Thurrock and Bluewater in Greenhithe are some of the main hubs for Retail vacancies.
