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.

Recruitment agencies in the area are predominately located close to both the Southend Central and the Southend Victoria railway stations. 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.
