As a market town in Lancashire in the North West region of England, Chorley is well positioned to act as a base for commuting executives and therefore offers numerous career opportunities. Strong levels of job creation have been reported across all sectors and foreign investment is continuing to pour into manufacturing, foreign-owned engineering firms and the IT industry.
Located just half an hour from Manchester airport and advantageously placed for the major motorways it has an excellent infrastructure to cater for economic growth without losing its small town charm. Investment is also happening apace just outside the town including retail parks and large supermarket chains. All of these provide jobs, not just in the service industry but in supporting areas as well including finance and project management.
The Chorley Group is one of the largest companies in the area with a flagship motor group boasting eight dealerships across the North West region. Large developments are also planned around Market Walk, increasing the size of the existing Market Walk Shopping Centre.Recruitment agencies like Daniel Adams that are situated in the town have excellent relationships with both big and small businesses in the area and provide a much-need liaison between those looking for employment and companies needing to hire. They also provide the added services of helping to create professional CV’s and guidance on interview techniques which are a boon to any job seeker.
