Cambridge recruitment agencies - Agency Central
Situated alongside the River Cam and close to Huntingdon, Cambridge is defined by its world-renowned university. With a staff of more than 8,000, the university provides jobs to about 10 percent of the local workforce. But the institution's influence goes far beyond the jobs it creates directly. It is also responsible for sparking the area's booming high-tech sector, fuelling the tourism industry, and attracting a high percentage of skilled technical workers and intellectuals.
Industries and employers
The area around Cambridge known as Silicon Fen is the most influential business district in the area, and is home to a dense cluster of Software, Electronic, and Biotech companies. Major employment providers including Marshall Aerospace, CSR, ARM, and Sinclair are based here, and the area also plays host to a large number of tech startups. Cambridge's workforce is primarily white collar, and 47% of employees hold professional occupations - while more than half have obtained NVQ4 or higher (which is almost twice the national average).
Finance and high-tech jobs account for 23% of all employment opportunities in Cambridge, and about one-quarter of the workforce is employed in retail or tourism-related roles. But the public sector nonetheless dominates the local job market; accounting for 40% of the workforce. Cambridge County Council and Addenbrooke Hospital are the two largest employers.
Salaries and recruitment in Cambridge
