Recruitment And Careers In Shropshire

England is a beautiful country, full of wonderful counties each with their own special flavour, but none offer more beauty and historical site potential seeing than the lovely county of Shropshire. The county town of Shrewsbury is a splendid example of an English medieval market town, and just down the road a few miles away, the town of Ludlow boasts one of the most well preserved castles not only in the county, but in the country. Small wonder then that Shropshire has a booming tourist industry, and in an industry that seldom sleeps, the county's tourist employment sector is constantly active in recruiting new blood.

An excellent infrastructure has been built up to support the bubbling visitor trade and there are many fine hotels and eating establishments across the county, especially in both Shrewsbury and Ludlow offering visitors to the region a great choice of quality accommodation, food and drink. The hotel and restaurant employment industry is headed up by Pec Hotel Staff Ltd. Based in the Shropshire town of Market Drayton, they are one of the leading employment agencies in this particular niche market. If you are a job seeker looking for a career in the hotel business you can visit them on Shropshire Street.

The most populous town in Shropshire is Telford with 138,421 people, a figure that represents 30% of the entire population of the county. With its economic roots buried in agriculture, more recently, Shropshire, and Telford in particular, have reinvented themselves as a hub of service industry activity. However agriculture does still play a big part in Shropshire's economic profile and at the Harper Adams University College, courses are offered in agricultural engineering. There are several employment agencies specialising in recruitment into the agricultural sector and job seekers are recommended to go to the recruitment section of the Countryside Network for some of the best employment opportunities in this particular market sector.

Shropshire has a great mining history, and many years ago the countryside was littered with mines and engine pump houses heralding the excavation of coal, copper, zinc, iron, clay, limestone and barite. But as richer veins were found elsewhere in the world, with the development of foreign trade and the import and export market structure, mining has become a thing of the past, and today there are no more working mines left in the county.

With development of the services industry sector, Shropshire has successfully redefined its economic structure, and the employment marketplace within the services sector is thriving. For job hunters seeking to gain employment in this sector of the economy and are looking for agencies in Shrewsbury, there are a multitude of excellent agencies you can apply to including A&D Recruitment in Traitors Gate on St Marys Water Lane who offer a wide range of jobs from secretarial to management, permanent, contract, full time, and part time posts too.

Worth considering also is Red Recruitment Solutions, (not to be mistaken for Reed Recruitment). Red is a local company and is an equal opportunities employment agency specialising in placements anywhere within the county, they can be found at 1 The Square.

For job hunters who are interested in joining the armed services, you may be interested to know that there are two RAF bases in Shropshire, one at RAF Cosford, and one at RAF Shawbury.

The main retail centres in Shropshire are based in Telford, (The Telford Shopping Centre; a new and modern shopping mall), and also in Shrewsbury The Pride Hill Shopping Centre plus the Darwin Centre - so named after the celebrated Charles Darwin who was himself a native of Shropshire.

For job hunters seeking jobs in the retail sector, Mercia Recruitment on Park Plaza, Battlefield Enterprise Park and Tudor Employment Agency Ltd offer plenty of choice jobs in this, and other market sectors, and are well worth registering with online, where you can submit a copy of your CV. Tudor are also found on Market Street in the Wellington area of Telford.
