While still regarded as a centre for manufacturing, Barrow-in-Furness has a varied economy that supports employment in everything from energy to tourism. The town and surrounding borough, based in southern Cumbria, is well served by recruitment agencies - including multi sector services and industry specialists.

Keys industries for recruitment

Manufacturing is the largest sector for recruiting in Barrow and provides 8,000 jobs - making up more than a quarter of the local working population. The largest manufacturing employer in the area is BAE Systems, who are based at the shipyard. Due to its position on the Furness Peninsula, the shipyard has historically been a key source of jobs and remains the largest shipyard in the UK.

Energy is another important sector for the town, with Rampside Gas Terminal being based here. Four wind farms are situated just off the coast, including West Duddon Wind Farm and Ormonde Wind Farm. Barrow makes up part of ‘Britain's Energy Coast.’

Due to its proximity to the Lake District, Barrow has a strong tourism sector. Around 3 million people visit the town annually, which gives a boost to the leisure and hospitality market. Accommodation and food services account for around 2,000 staff, although this is affected by seasonality.   

Finding an employment service

Barrow recruitment agencies are mainly located in the town centre, within the area between Devonshire Dock and Barrow-in-Furness Railway Station. Slightly away from the centre, employers and candidates can find services close to the A590.
