Recruitment Agencies in Halifax, West Yorkshire, Yorkshire & Humberside

Halifax lies in the Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire. It was once the centre of the English wool trade, and is also famous for producing the Halifax Bank, and Mackintosh chocolate (which has since been taken over by Nestle.) It is located just off the M62 motorway, near to Huddersfield, Rochdale, and Bradford.

Around 95,000 residents live in the town, 64% of whom possess qualifications. Many work in the town itself, while others prefer to commute to its larger neighbours like Leeds and Manchester. In recent years, Halifax's traditional industries of textiles, engineering and manufacturing have been overtaken by the service and financial industries. However, manufacturing still accounts for 17% of local employment, which is well above West Yorkshire and national levels.

The average annual wage is around £27,739. However, in nearby wards of Calderdale, 20% of households have annual incomes exceeding £50,000, and the borough is the most affluent in the whole of West Yorkshire.

Lloyds are one of the biggest private sector employers in the area, along with Suma Wholefoods, and Calderdale Council, which employs more than 9,000 staff in departments like planning, education, health, tourism, and housing.

Recruitment agencies frequently offer a wide range of career opportunities both in and around Halifax.
