Recruitment Agencies based in South West, UK

The South West of England is often also colloquially known as the 'West Country' and broadly comprises the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Covering a vast region of the country, the South West is actually only home to about 5 million people, making it one of the least densely populated regions of England. The area is known for it's stunning coastline, rolling hills, cream teas, and beautiful countryside, all of which combines to make it a desirable place to live.

Despite the rolling hills and patchwork fields, agriculture only accounts for 2% of all employment in the region, although dairy farming still remains very important in parts of Devon and Dorset. The region's economy relies heavily on the economic output of the region's largest city of Bristol which accounts for roughly a quarter of the area's economy. Both the universities in the city are large employers, as are local NHS trusts, Airbus UK, Rolls Royce, and BAE Systems all of which are based out of Bristol and are responsible for significant staff numbers.

Elsewhere the Eden Project, GCHQ, HP, Indesit, and the Environment Agency are major employers. As with the rest of the country, service industries dominate employment at 69.9%, but manufacturing also accounts for 9% of all employment. Utilising the expertise of specialist recruitment agencies will increase the likelihood of success in any job search in the South West as, for the most part potential employers will advertise for staff through such recruitment agencies.
