Recruitment Agencies in Southend-on-Sea

The seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea was once a bustling tourist hub, however the job market now relies heavily on the public sector and private service industries. As Central London is just 40 miles away, Southend has attracted a diverse range of employer types and recruitment agencies will aim to find the right staff for local employment opportunities.

This area, just to the east of Westcliffe-on-Sea, is home to a mixture of specialist and multi-sector recruiting firms. The A217 provides excellent access to this hub of employment firms.

Key industries and employers

The Tourism sector is still worth more than £300 million per year to the Southend-on-Sea economy. Around 15% of workers are employed in Tourism fields such as Hospitality or Catering, however many of these will be part-time or temp jobs.

Education, Health and other Public Sector services have the greatest combined workforce in Southend, accounting for around 33% of the labour force. The Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is the single largest public sector employer and is responsible for approximately 1,700 members of staff.
