More information

The cultural and administrative capital of Lancashire County, Preston is a fast growing economic centre of 140,000 on the River Ribble in North West England. Formerly dominated by a lucrative textile industry, Preston continues to be driven by manufacturing, which is quite uncommon for cities in the UK today. But Preston is one of the nation's most important producers of aerospace and defence technology. In fact, more than 56% of jobs in the area are aerospace or defence related, while 25% are in construction, and about one-fifth are positions in manufacturing.

Engineering, healthcare, and education staff also account for significant portions of the workforce. Top local employers include BAE Systems (based in nearby Warton) and the Westinghouse Electric Company, which has a large nuclear plant in the region. In total, about one-third of the workforce is employed by the public sector, and the region shows an even distribution between blue-collar and white-collar positions. This career distribution is also reflected in Preston's education levels: 30% have attained NVQ4 or higher, while just under 20% have no academic qualifications. In 2012, unemployment was at just 3.4% while median weekly income was £433.40.
