Recruitment Agencies in Guildford

The town of Guildford is one of the most heavily populated settlements in Surrey and a thriving area for employment. Based just a 40 minute train journey from Central London, the town is popular amongst commuters, but has a successful local economy in its own right. Recruitment agencies in Guildford are therefore commonly in demand to fill a range of permanent and temporary job roles, in industries such as Retail, IT and Finance.

The River Wey runs through the centre of Guildford and the majority of recruiters in the town are situated to the east of this - close to the high street. A number of these are specialist agencies that offer recruiting expertise in fields including Oil & Gas, Health & Safety and Office Work. Transport links such as Guildford Station, London Road Station and the A3 makes this area easily accessible for job seekers and employers.

Economic overview and salaries

With a population of 143,000, Guildford is the largest town in Surrey. Employment in the area largely mirrors the UK average with a rate of 73.7%, however earnings are typically higher than the rest of the country. Median weekly pay for workers in Guildford is £646.10, although it should be noted that this will vary on the job role and the employer.

Key industries and employers

Guildford has developed an enviable reputation within the Electronics and Video Games sectors. This has been helped by notable local businesses such as Media Molecule, Lionhead Studios (which is set to close in 2016) and Criterion Games, however these have since been acquired by industry leading firms including EA. The Public Sector meanwhile, employs 28.2% of the Guildford workforce. The University of Surrey has more than 2000 staff members, including Lecturers and Non-teaching Support Staff, while Royal Surrey County Hospital has in excess of 3000 employees.

Elsewhere, the High Street helps support a Retail industry that employs in excess of 15% of the labour market and just under a quarter of workers operate within the field of Finance. Other significant employers of staff in Guildford include Philips, Ericsson and Sanofi.
