Recruitment Agencies in Oxford

Oxford, a city and county town within Oxfordshire, has one of the most diverse economies in the UK. Perhaps most well known for its ancient university, Oxford is surrounded by areas such as Witney, Bicester and Kidlington and benefits from its location in the south of the UK. The city is well-served by a range of recruitment agencies that will work alongside both candidates and employers.

Recruitment agencies in Oxford are focussed mainly around the High Street and Market Street. This area is sandwiched between the River Thames and the University of Oxford. Although many multi-discipline agencies base themselves in the city, specialist employment firms can be found for industries such as IT, Engineering and Accountancy. Due to the centrality of its location, recruiters in the Oxford area are easily accessible. The M40 motorway connects Oxford directly with London and Birmingham, and to the south, the M4 gives easy access to Bristol. Oxford Railway Station also provides local transport.

Economic overview and salaries

Oxford has a population of 158,000 people, making it the largest settlement in Oxfordshire. 36.7% of residents over the age of 16 have a degree, which is one of the highest figures in the UK. At 74.7%, the employment rate in the city is slightly greater than the UK average, and median gross weekly earnings is £580.30.

Key industries and employers

The Academic and Research Sectors are almost synonymous with Oxford - with Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University providing employment for a large number of knowledge-workers and support staff. In 2011, 23.6% of workers living in Oxford were employed in Education - including Teachers and Lecturers. Services complementary to the University Sector have developed around the Oxford area - including publishers like the Oxford University Press, Wiley-Blackwell, and Elsevier. The Oxford Science Park is home to many IT and Bioscience companies. There is also strong manufacturing base in Oxford, and BMW's plant there employs around 4,000 people. Unipart's global headquarters is also located in the area.
