Perhaps best known for its ancient university, the city of Oxford benefits from its location almost in the centre of the south of England, in Oxfordshire. It, and surrounding areas such as Witney, Bicester, and Kidlington, are well-served by recruitment agencies - and this page is probably the easiest way to find them.
Where do people work in Oxford?
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.
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 a 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.
Oxford's transportation links for commuters
Due to the centrality of its location, Oxford is perfectly placed for travel almost anywhere in the south of England or midlands - and has enviable transport links with the north, Wales, and beyond. The M40 motorway connects Oxford directly with London and Birmingham, and to the south, the M4 gives easy access to Bristol. Oxford Railway Station links the city with the country's rail network, whilst London Oxford Airport provides a commercial air link with the capital. Oxford is well-placed for travel from a number of international airports - including Heathrow and Birmingham.
Types of employment agencies in the area
Due to the nature of industry in the area, recruitment agencies in Oxford, Witney, Bicester, and Kidlington often have a speciality in recruiting for technical fields. Those in high-tech or knowledge-based industries will find themselves well-served by recruiters - but the sector in the area is by no means limited to this. Generalist recruiters exist to help people in more or less any role find a job, and given the prosperity of the locality, Oxford has many.
