Aylesbury is a county town in Buckinghamshire in the South East of England.
Public administration, education and health jobs make up 28% of the total employment opportunities in Aylesbury, with Aylesbury Town Council and Stoke Mandeville NHS Hospitalcontributingto the high employment rates in this sector. For educational specialists, the town offers a considerable number of job openings through its numerous educational establishments, which include a further education college, three grammar schools, two community upper schools, an academy, a specialistcentrefor music education, and several primary schools. There are also two special schools for high school children with learning disabilities and a pupil referral unit for permanently excluded students.
Aylesbury's workforce boasts some of the highest education levels in the South East, with almost 40% having attained a qualification at NVQ Level 4 or higher. In 2012, weekly average income for full-time staff in the town was £514, which is higher than the average for workers across the rest of Great Britain.
While three major industrial and commercialcentresensure that Aylesbury benefits from some of the country's lowest unemployment rates, unemployment rates are set to fall further still as redevelopment work in the area surrounding the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre gets underway. Once completed, the so-called Waterside project will create 260,000 square feet of retail space and recruitment agencies estimate that it will bring around 1,100 new jobs.
