Recruitment Agencies in Swansea, West Glamorgan, Wales
Swansea is a county and coastal city within West Glamorgan, Wales. Although the area was once known as a key copper distribution port, Swansea has since developed a heavily service-based economy. Recruitment agencies in the city will therefore cover a diverse job market, recruiting candidates for a range of local career opportunities.
What are the biggest industries for employment?
As with most major settlements, the public sector is the largest employer of local staff. Health and Education make up around 40% of jobs, with Swansea NHS Trust, the City & County of Swansea Council and Swansea Metropolitan University being major employers. Additionally, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency's main UK offices are based in Swansea, employing around 4,500 staff.
Construction recruitment in Swansea is slightly higher than that of the UK average, with the sector employing nearly 5000 workers. This includes skilled professionals such as bricklayers, architects and plumbers. As a result there are a number of construction employment firms in the area, predominantly situated close to Swansea Bay and the River Tawe.
Elsewhere, Swansea's city centre itself is short of industry. Most of the largest employers, such as Alberto-Culver and The Land Registry, are situated on the Enterprise Park. The biggest individual occupational groups, associate professional & technical occupations, (about one sixth of overall employment), are also typically found here.
