Recruitment Agencies in Luton
With a population of over 200K people, Luton is the largest settlement within the South East county of Bedfordshire. The town is located 30 miles from London and surrounded by Dunstable, Houghton Regis and Leighton Buzzard. Excluding the latter, this is collectively known as the Luton / Dunstable Urban Area. Luton recruitment agencies are in high demand to fill vacancies both in the town and neighbouring areas.
The majority of recruitment agencies that cover Luton, Leighton Buzzard and their adjoining towns are multi-sector recruiters covering permanent, temporary and contract vacancies. These tend to be based within Luton town centre, however other agencies also exist situated near outer villages such as Hightown and Wigmore. Specialist staffing firms are less prominent, but can be found in areas including Capability Green and Basepoint Business and Innovation Centre.
Economic overview and salaries
The Luton labour market is made up of over 80K employees and this contributes towards an unemployment figure of around 3.5%. This is slightly greater than Leighton Buzzard, but comparatively less than the majority of nearby towns. The area also performs well in relation to advertised salaries, with average earnings for staff in the area typically exceeding £32K.
Key industries and employers
Altogether, over half of Luton's local workforce is employed in the Public, Administration, Retail and Healthcare sectors. Luton Borough Council is the largest employer in the area - with more than 8,000 employees. Luton & Dunstable Hospital and the University of Bedfordshire are also significant employers in the area.
Other notable employers in the area include London Luton Airport - which is also home to businesses such as EasyJet and Monarch Airlines. The Aviation Industry is strong in the area - and nearby Leighton Buzzard is home to B/E Aerospace.
Luton has a rich history in the Automotive Industry - being home for many years to a large Vauxhall plant - and many firms still operate in this sector. As well as being home to Vauxhall's HQ, Luton boasts firms such as Hayward Taylor, IBC Vehicles, and Ultra Precision Engineering. Dunstable is also home to Magna Seating - who work in conjunction with Vauxhall.
