Recruitment Agencies in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Home Counties

High Wycombe is a market town within the UK home county of Buckinghamshire. Closely associated with Marlow and Amersham, the High Wycombe Urban Area has a strong industrial reputation and recruitment agencies will aim to support the local job market by finding staff for permanent or temporary vacancies.

Economy of High Wycombe and the surrounding area

High Wycombe is a town in transition and the local economy has been impacted by the recession. It's unemployment figure is the highest in the area, with the nearby constituency of Chesham and Amersham having nearly 50% less of the population out of work. Despite this, more than a third of workers are employed in a managerial position and this has resulted in an average household income of nearly £40K. Beaconsfield and the district of Chiltern are some of the wealthiest places to live in the region, with average house prices exceeding 20 times the average annual salary.

Key industries for jobs

Wycombe's most historic industry is furniture making and this was supported by nearby Burnham Beeches, an area of woodland close to Beaconsfield. Although this industry has declined in economic importance, it still remains a key component of the town's identity and has resulted with the local football team being nicknamed the 'Chairboys'. As for manufacturing, Hyundai Motors have headquarters locally and the industry as a whole employs nearly 10% of the local workforce. Chesham and Amersham were also once considered a key area for manufacturing, especially within boot and beer making. These have largely been replaced by service industries. Other key industries include wholesale and retail, and the headquarters for 3663 and Staples can be found here.

Recruitment agencies in High Wycombe

Due to the decline of traditional skilled industries, many of the recruitment agencies in High Wycombe are multi-sector recruiters. The area is home to a number of specialist firms, however these tend to cater for logistics and driving disciplines. The majority of major agencies are located in the town centre, just a few miles from the M40 and close to Abbey Way and Oxford Road.
