Bellshill is a town in North Lanarkshire, located about 10 miles south east of Glasgow city centre in Scotland. The town has a population of about 20,700 people and much like Glasgow and the rest of the country has an economy largely based in the service industries.
Much of the area's employment comes from the Public Administration, Education, and Health sector, with the local council, NHS Trusts, and area schools supplying much of the town and local area's employment. Virgin Media is also a major employer in the area, with a base of operations in Bellshill. Having recently announced plans to increase employment in Bellshill with the creation of 60 job opportunities, Virgin Media will be accountable for over 800 staff members in Bellshill and the surrounding area.
As with the rest of the country, the economic downturn means that competition is stiff, but the likelihood of success for any applicant can be increased by utilising the specialist knowledge and experience of recruitment agencies who know the local area and the employers and companies based there. The major employers in Bellshill will advertise through recruitment agencies in order to find the very best candidates to join their existing staff in the area.
