The city of Norwich is located in the East of England, in the East Anglia region. It is the county town of Norfolk. Geographically distant from much of England, yet with a strong economy, the city of Norwich represents an interesting opportunity for recruiters, employers and candidates alike. Greater Norwich (which includes towns such as Aylsham and Diss) had a population of 213,166 in the UK 2011 Census.
As with any city, Norwich is home to a mixture of employment types - but certain industries are unusually strong in the area. With this being the case, recruitment agencies in Norwich often specialise in sourcing candidates for certain industries - including Agriculture, Manufacturing and Retail.
Recruitment in Norwich
Many of Norwich's recruitment agencies are located in the city centre - in the area just to the west of the Cathedral. Other, often more specialist-oriented agencies might be located outside of the city centre - taking advantage of easier parking or proximity to the industry they operate in. Whether you are looking to find a new job or to hire more staff - on a permanent, temporary, or contract basis - you will be well served by Norwich's recruitment agencies, no matter what sector you operate in.

Jobs, careers, and major employers in Norwich
It could be said that Norfolk's relative isolation might be responsible for the success of the Agricultural Industry in the area - which represents a traditional bastion of employment. Other major areas of employment include retail - with Norwich continually ranking highly for measures of consumer satisfaction. Companies in the city's Castle Mall and intu Chapelfield Shopping Centres are often recruiting within the Retail and Leisure industries.
The Manufacturing Industry is also strong in the area, and thanks to the county's Agricultural links, the Food Industry provides a multitude of jobs in Food Manufacture and Food Science - thanks especially to the Norwich Research Park in Colney, which is home to many businesses in this sector.
