Recruitment Agencies in Blackburn, Lancashire, North West
Blackburn is located in east Lancashire, in the north-west of Great Britain, and about 20 miles north of Manchester. The town's economy was once supported by a bustling textile industry, and the area was widely known for Wool and Cotton Weaving. With past decades having seen the Textile Industry all but vanish in Blackburn, the region has begun to diversify in order to provide a multitude of employment and recruitment opportunities.
A recent multi-million pound economic stimulus project is now underway. By renovating Blackburn's historic Church Street, local officials hope to revive the business district and boost Tourism in the area.
