Located south of the River Thames, the town of Windsor is just 30 miles from London and a short drive from Heathrow Airport. The town itself is populated by approximately 31,000 people but the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead altogether is home to more than 147,000 people. Its position so close to the capital city means it is a superb location for recruitment agencies to find candidates from sales executives to financial directors.
There is a high concentration of employment agencies in the Windsor area and close to Eton Wick, while the M4 separates another smattering of organisations dedicated to recruiting from the area. Employers looking for permanent, temporary or contract staff may choose to approach these agencies, who recruit for sectors including administration, accountancy and scientific.
Those working in Windsor can expect to enjoy generous remuneration. The average median salary in the area is touching £30,000. In the Royal Borough as a whole, there are 77,800 people in employment. This equates to 79.6% of the entire Borough, but is even more impressive when you consider the fact that the percentage of economically active people is 82.8%.
Tourism is a huge industry in Windsor and of great importance. With Windsor Castle and LEGOLAND located in the area, along with the world-famous Ascot Racecourse, there are significant events that will hire staff at particular times during the year. The Royal Borough as a whole contributes more than £600 million to the economy through its tourism industry, and spending supports close to 10,000 jobs. Because of these events / venues, which also boasts the Royal Windsor Racecourse, tourism has a massive impact on the catering and hospitality sectors. As a result, seasonal waiting and bar staff, as well as chefs, are often in high demand.
The Lego Group therefore has a strong history of hiring in the area but there are many businesses looking to employ staff in many different sectors. Recruitment agencies in Windsor cater for candidates of all ages with a diverse range of skills. There are positions in the project management, finance and legal and professions, as well as other specialist roles including roads and highways.
