Bury is known throughout the North West region as a town whose thrice-weekly market draws shoppers from far and wide. The opening of the Metrolink tram/train service which terminates at Bury has also increased its popularity, as has the reopening of the East Lancashire Light Railway.
The town is famous for paper-making, which has taken a downturn somewhat over the past few years. These days there remain no more than a small number of the mills which once firmly placed Bury among the most important paper making centres in Europe. However the town is regaining some of its past glory in paper manufacture, with the Fort Sterling factory at Ramsbottom having recently invested £70 million in paper-making processing.
This thriving town is well placed to attract businesses, both large and small. The financial sector is increasing and many companies are recruiting financial consultants, accountants and managers. Recruitment agencies like Daniel Adams are on hand to offer support services such as professional CV writing and provide help with interview techniques and job applications. They will also help you practice face-to-face interviews and give up to date information on current trends and available positions in the Finance sector.
