Employment in the town is generally very high. Of 100,500 who are economically active, 98,000 are in work. Not only does this represent over 83.3% of Colchester's overall population, but that figure rises further when just those registered for employment are considered.

Key industries and employers

According to the Office for National Statistics, human health and social work activities accounts for over 13% of Colchester's workforce, which is also higher than the national average.
