Some of these employment agencies hire staff for individual industries including Healthcare, while there are many in Brentwood that work with employers from a multitude of sectors.
According to the latest labour market statistics, Brentwood's employment rate is almost 78%, which constitutes a remarkably high number of economically active people in the town.
