Truro is the county town of Cornwall and the most southern city in the UK. With a population of nearly 21,000 people, the city is the fifth largest settlement in the area and one of the most economically important. Truro was once renowned for its tin mining industry, however local recruitment is now focused on the tourism and service sectors.
What are popular sectors for work in Truro?
Though traditionally a port and stannary town, public administration, education and healthcare are now the main providers of local jobs. Some of the biggest employers are Truro College and the Royal Cornwall Hospital, however a recruitment agency will supply staff for a range of tertiary organisations.
Elsewhere, Truro is Cornwalls’ centre for leisure and retail jobs. The city is home to a wide range of nationwide and independent shops, however candidates will also find opportunities for work on retail parks in Treliske and Threemilestone.
As a prime tourist destination, seasonality has a significant impact on the activities of Truro recruiters. Part time and temporary vacancies tend to increase during the summer months, as they also do around Christmas.

Recruitment agencies are predominantly based in the city centre, close to Truro Cathedral, the River Kenwyn and the River Allen. This area is less than a mile from Truro railway station. Outside of the centre, there are a number of staffing businesses based at Truro Technology Park in Newham.
