Huntingdon lies in the county of Cambridgeshire, England, and is a market town that is home to a population of over 22,000. It is famous for being the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell (and even has a museum dedicated to him), and still retains many of its historic buildings and structures such as All Saints Church, and a medieval bridge.
The town employs a high number of staff in the manufacturing sector, and many large retail businesses have chosen to open stores in the city centre as well as out of town. There are a number of business parks and industrial areas at locations like Beaufort Park, St Peters Road, and Stukeley Meadows.
Major employers include the Lola Group, Solo Cup Europe, Barclays Bank, and Anglia Water. Many employment opportunities are provided by public sector organisations, as well as retail, distribution, and manufacturing companies. As a result, you will find several recruitment agencies listing positions in these sectors.
Around 20% of the population possess NVQ Level 4 and above qualifications. Median weekly earnings are approximately 7% higher than the national average, and economic activity is particularly high. Despite the recent national economic downturn, Huntingdon's unemployment figures are relatively low, at just 2.6%, making it a great location for job-seekers.
