Major employers in the Birmingham area
As with most British cities, one of the largest employers in Birmingham is the local council - which is also the largest local authority in Europe. In the past, the area was known for the production of vehicles - with the Longbridge Plant having been associated with brands such as MG Rover and British Leyland. Following the collapse of MG Rover, the motor industry in the area suffered greatly, with many redundancies, but employers such as Jaguar remain in the area, employing many people.
Other major employers around Birmingham include the National Express Group, which has its head office there, as well as the Finance Industry - Lloyds Banking Group and The Royal Bank of Scotland both employing large numbers of people. Kraft Foods (owners of Cadbury) also have a head office in Birmingham, located at the historic Bournville site.
