Job Hunting In Wales

The principality of Wales holds a unique position in the UK. It is a region of outstanding natural beauty, but one that also combines a great heritage, from its Celtic roots to its industrial pedigree and history of coal mining, and steel making, and all to the gentle and compelling background strains of the celebrated Welsh male voice choirs that typify all that is great about Wales. The Welsh people are a proud folk who have managed to promote their native language to the state where it more than just a national treasure; it is still very much a working language, taught in schools and spoken by many (over 20% of the population) in all walks of life.

Job seekers that reside in Wales are fortunate indeed to not only inhabit a countryside of rare beauty, towering mountains and a rugged coastline, but a region of diverse industry, both new and old that promises a rich and fertile ground for cultivating careers. The population of Wales is over 3 million, with most people living in the south where the majority of the industry is sited. The cities and Towns of Cardiff, Swansea, Neath, Port Talbot Newport, and Wrexham, provide a vibrant backdrop for social activity as well as a place of work.

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales, having a population of over 317,000, and it has reinvented itself as a great retail centre as well as being home to a vast array of businesses operating in the new hi-tech arena; providing a rich variety of innovative services and cutting edge technology in both communications and manufacturing. For job seekers looking to gain an employment toehold in this niche business sector, there is an excellent network of employment specialists to turn to, including nationally known Brooke Street Bureau’s offices in Cardiff, and Kelly Services, also to be found in Cardiff.

With so much stunning natural beauty, it is no surprise to find that Wales has a huge tourism economy. From the splendour of Snowdonia, (the highest mountain in England and Wales), to the beautiful sandy beaches at Abersoch; Wales has something for even the most demanding tourist. The wonderful Heads of the Valleys offer breathtaking scenery, and stunning visitor attractions such as Caernarfon Castle (which saw the investiture of Charles Prince of Wales) attract tourists in their millions all year round. For job seekers hoping to find employment in the supporting hospitality and leisure industry, recruitment consultants such as Acorn, and Blue Arrow, have many excellent opportunities well worth pursuing.

Wales is a truly diverse region. The North is more agricultural whilst in the south there is every sort of industry from steel production, to oil refining, and from heavy engineering, to the hi-tech support services, local government and public administration. A superb network of universities including the universities of Cardiff, Swansea, Bangor, Glamorgan, and the University of Wales, provide a superb stream of graduates into the many employment sectors. The night life of Cardiff has rebranded the city as a Mecca for young people looking for fun and excitement.

Wales has a vitality that appeals to job seekers in all walks of the economy, combining the awesome natural beauty of the countryside with the vibrant, bustling life of its fine cities and towns. Like its passion for Rugby and Male Voice Choirs, Wales provides a great and varied environment for its inhabitants to both live and work in.
