Camberley is an affluent Surrey town situated close to the borders of Berkshire and Hampshire and around 30 miles southeast of London. Due to it's location and short distance from the UK capital, Camberley has become an attractive proposition for a company looking to establish an office or headquarters in the South East of the country. A selection of some of the UK's most well known businesses are based here and Camberley recruitment agencies aim to save these clients time by sourcing quality candidates and facilitating employment in the town.
Jobs in this Surrey suburb are varied but the prominence of technology firms has increased the number of job opportunities for technical minded candidates in engineering and sales. Siemens are one of the latest tech giants to move into Camberley after relocating their UK headquarters there in 2007.
Retail is also an important industry for job prospects in this area of Surrey Heath, with The Mall shopping centre housing high profile companies such as House of Fraser, Primark and Sony. This was further boosted by The Atrium development that has seen the introduction of more jobs via new shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities. As a result, retail firms have grown to become one of the biggest employers of staff in the town.
The average household income in Camberley is around £45K which sits comfortably above the UK average of £29K. This is accompanied by the low unemployment rate, which at just 0.8%, is lower than nearby Farnborough and Basingstoke. The percentage of the working population currently in jobs is actually one of the highest in the whole of the country. The effectiveness of specialist local recruiters contributes to these figures as they look to search and place candidates into their clients' permanent, temporary and contract vacancies. Many local recruitment consultants won't just be limited to Camberley and will also offer staffing solutions to the wider areas of Frimley, Farnham and Newbury.
