It is no secret that the current economic downturn has hit the job market hard. With unemployment constantly rising and not many jobs becoming available, this has led to a fiercely competitive job market. This can all lead to very frustrating times for those who are on the lookout for employment. There are jobs out there of course; you just need to be looking in the right places. Here we take a look at some of the best places to look in Leicestershire for a job.

Food and Drink

Food and drinks manufacturing companies are responsible for a large number of the employed in the Leicestershire area. Of these companies United Biscuits would be one of the bigger operators in the region as they not only hold a distribution centre in Ashby-de-la Zouch, but also own snacks and biscuits manufacturing factories in Wigston.

Of the other food and drink manufacturers operating in the area, Belvoir Fruit Farms, Whiskas, Pukka Pies and Mayur Foods are but a few. There are also a large number of markets operating in the Leicestershire area. Perhaps the most famous of these markets would be the Leicester Market, renowned for being the largest outdoor covered market in Europe. Playing host to many different types of business including but not limited to clothes stalls, butchers and fish mongers, it truly is a hive of activity and commerce. We would recommend that if you are of an entrepreneurial mindset and possess a great business idea to visit the Leicester council and look into to starting your own stall at one of these markets.
