Chorley has recently become a more important player in the areas of finance and industry in the North West region of the UK. It has very good transport links and an excellent quality of life with a blossoming industrial and financial sector and a wide ranging and increasing economy.
It is located only 30 minutes from Manchester International Airport and has market catchments of Manchester, Liverpool and Preston. As a contemporary market town it is drawing in businesses from International markets as well as being a place for smaller businesses to start up.
The finance and accounting sector in particular is increasing and companies such as Tenon, one of Britain's top ten companies of Chartered Accountants have chosen Chorley as their North West Base and settled into the commercial heart of the Town Centre. Debt Free Debit is another business which has expanded its workforce over the past ten years and is often looking to recruit.
The industrial structure of Chorley mirrors that of the rest of the UK, with the manufacturing and construction industries being integral to the economy, but by far the largest sector belonging to the services industry.
Recruitment agents such as Daniel Adams are able to forge links between employment seekers and companies looking for the right person for the position. Accounting posts are often advertised as so many successful local and International companies make Chorley their home.
