Blackburn is bordered to the south by Darwen, and together they form the unitary authority area of Blackburn with Darwen. Blackburn takes the helm as the administrative centre.
Large scale regeneration projects have been taking place across the borough, driven by Blackburn with Darwen Council, and funded by public bodies including the European Regional Development Fund, the North West Development Agency, and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Private sector investment continues to flow into Blackburn and can be seen most dramatically in the recently completed 600 million facelift to the town’s Shopping centre, The Malls.
Blackburn with Darwen borough Council implement schemes to help job seekers gain experience and training, working alongside large recruitment agencies such as Daniel Adams who can help candidates to find employment opportunities and prepare for the world of work. Blackburn and Darwen offer wide ranging employment opportunities from administration, tourism to retail and hospitality.
From highly technical aerospace engineering to opportunities in health care, candidates from all walks of life are able to find employment. Thanks to their long working relationships with international and local companies, Daniel Adams helps facilitate industrial recruitment, with jobs in the fields of engineering, catering, warehouse personnel and drivers.
