Lancashire has long been known as one of the best places in England in terms of quality of life, especially for those looking to raise or support a family. However, in recent years the destination has rapidly developed a reputation as an important destination for job seekers looking for rewarding work within prestigious public and private sector organisations.
These opportunities cater to a wide array of individuals, from junior positions to senior management in a wide range of sectors and industries. This explosion of open positions is largely due to an influx of investment that is being made into the North West region, largely due to an increasing lack of interest upon London, with investors and skilled candidates seeking an escape from the ‘rat-race’ London lifestyle to a destination that offers a more rewarding lifestyle. Multiple organizations have received funding in order to assist businesses within the North West region on how best to proceed with general growth as well as advice on hiring, and training of new employees.
One approach that has been employed by numerous large and smaller scale businesses is to seek the assistance from trusted recruitment agencies with a thorough understanding of the region in which they operate, as well as a complete understanding of what makes a good candidate. These agencies are able to make the recruitment far less painful and far quicker for both employees and hiring managers, only putting forward candidates they know to hold the relevant experience and skillset to succeed in the role.
Recruitment agencies will also work with candidates to improve their interviewing ability, assist with CV optimization and supportive career advice, all of which contribute to a far more successful and less painful job hunt.
Even with the assistance of such agencies, the job-landscape within the great Lancashire region continues to look increasingly appealing to many hopeful job-seekers. The economic growth and rapid business development schemes are not looking to slow down, as it is looking more and more likely one or more of the major cities with in the North West region will soon be in a position to compete with London as industrial and financial capital of the UK. These aspects combine to make Lancashire a very interesting prospect for hopeful candidates and businesses alike.
