Economic overview of Oldham

The decline of industrially focused industries has resulted in an economic downturn within Oldham and the surrounding areas. Unemployment in the town is higher than that of the rest of the county, and more than 10% of the 100,000 economically active population are considered out of work. There are however, more than 6,500 business in Oldham, representing 7% of Greater Manchester.

What are the key industries for Oldham jobs?

The industrial revolution made Oldham a centre for manufacturing. In the mid 19th century, more than 30% of the town's inhabitants were employed within textiles, however the industry has since declined and the last cotton mill closed in 1998. Since then, the health sector has become Oldham's largest employment field and nearly 13,000 people work for organisations such as the Royal Oldham Hospital and the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. Retail is the second largest employer in Oldham and more than 10,000 people have jobs in this sector. This is supported by retail centres such as the Elk Mill Shopping Park, but the sector has also seen a fall since 2010. Conversely, financial services is one of the fastest growing fields in this area of Greater Manchester and is responsible for 13% of jobs. Oldham is largely considered a commuter town and more than 56% of the population work outside of the borough. Manchester is the most common destination for local commuters, followed by settlements such as Rochdale, Ashton-Under-Lyne and Tameside.
