Job Search And Recruitment In Exeter

Exeter is the capital city of Devon with an established and ever flourishing tourist industry, especially now towards the end of the credit crunch when many of us have chosen to holiday in the UK. Situated just off the M5 where the A30 joins, Exeter has excellent transport links to the rest of the UK despite being positioned somewhat out on a limb. Once an ancient Roman town, Exeter retains much of its history and heritage with some of the old Roman ruins and town walls still intact. The city has a beautiful cathedral and a well renowned university. It is the major area of employment in Devon and has a lively recruitment market with plenty of recruitment agencies to choose from which specialize in certain areas (e.g. you can approach Academy for Training and Development based on Marsh Road Green North who specialize in jobs within the catering trade and equally invite school leavers and more experienced workers as well as EU migrant workers).

Exeter University has an excellent reputation across the country particularly in the field of English Literature and the Arts. It is one of the area's major employers in the city, and as with any University, the employment covers a wide scope of skills and expertise from professors and lecturing staff, through to administration staff, grounds-men, and canteen staff. Exeter Uni. provides a wide range of choice for job seekers and you can approach the University directly to apply for vacancies which are advertised on their website.

The Dix's Field area of the city is home to "The Professions" and is where you will find the solicitors, the accountants, and also a number of recruitment agencies plying their trade such as Lingua Recruitment or Circle. It's the prefect place for graduates who have their accountancy or legal degrees to begin the careers.

Exeter's healthy tourist industry is fuelled by the city's Roman past and the beautiful cathedral surrounded by the Cathedral Walk Olde Worlde shopping square. A brand new indoor shopping precinct is under construction and due to open shortly bringing with it a whole new set of opportunities for job seekers. For nationally known high street agencies you will find Reed, Pertemps and Hayes Recruitment in Exeter who can always help with a wider range of vacancies covering the city's several large industrial estates and business parks, the largest and busiest of which is Marsh Barton which is home to a wide cross section of industry providing lots of vacancies across the board for sales people, admin and support staff, buyers, secretarial, warehouse and factory staff etc. More specialist agencies can cover areas such as driving (Drivers on James Road), engineering (Spring Engineering, High Street) and the health service (Devon Health & Recruitment Services on Blackboy Road).

If you are considering a career in the police force, Exeter is home to the regional police headquarters of the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary who are one of the high profile leading police forces in the country and one of the larger employers in the city; the perfect choice if you are considering a career in the police force.

Another coup for Exeter was when the national UK Met Office relocated to Devon creating hundreds of new job opportunities in the region. It is now very well established and is also one of the city's leading high profile employers.

Exeter is a "well rounded" city and has spread its net wide in terms of the different industries, professions and skills, to form a strong and diverse economic community. It has a lot to offer and is a fine place to base your career.
