Chesterfield is a market town in Derbyshire in the East Midlands of England. With a population of just over 103,000, it is Derbyshire's largest town.
Chesterfield's largest employer is the Post Office administration department, which is located on the edge of the town centre. While public administration, education and health jobs make up over 33% of the employment openings in this town, manufacturing jobs are also common. Robinsons, SIG plc, Rhodes Engineering Group, Chesterfield Felt, and Franke Sissons Ltd are amongst the town's largest employers of manufacturing specialists.
In addition to advertising many and varied manufacturing jobs, recruitment agencies in the region are known for offering a wide range of sales and customer service employment openings. Chesterfield is home to some of the largest open air markets in Great Britain, which help to account for the higher-than-average number of sales and customer service jobs.
