Historically in the county of Surrey, the town of Mitcham is a thriving area that sits just 20 minutes outside of Central London. The well-developed settlement, which is popular amongst commuters, is situated within the London Borough of Merton and provides recruitment opportunities for what is predominantly a service based economy.
Recruitment agencies in Mitcham are mainly located in the town centre. This is just a short distance from the River Wandle and Mitcham Common. There are a number of public transports links, such as Mitcham Junction and Mitcham Eastfields, that make agencies easily accessible for candidates and employers.
The local population of the town is around 63,000 and employment in the Mitcham and Morden area as a whole has been on the rise. This includes youth and long-term employment. Recruitment in Mitcham is therefore also on the rise and agencies will fill permanent, temporary and contract vacancies.
Mitcham recruitment is focussed around service industries, so local job seekers will typically find employment in areas such as Retail and Finance. The town centre, close to Mitcham Fair Green, provides the majority of career opportunities, however there are industrial estates on the outskirts of town that also list vacancies. The Willow Lane Trading Estate, for instance, is the base for more than 150 employers and 2,500 workers. Accounting, Telecoms and Security firms can all be found here.
