Bournemouth has multifarious employment opportunities, both in the town and surrounding areas. Although historically a centre of the manufacturing industry, like so many towns in Britain it has had to find develop new economic incentives over the past decades, as the small manufacturing hub which is left in the southeast has moved to nearby Poole. With its location next the sea on the temperate south coast of England, it quite naturally gravitated towards tourism and the service sector in general.
More than 90% of the population in Bournemouth now works in the service industry, and this ranges from hotel employees to leisure centre workers and even performers in some of the many theatre groups in the region. With new facilities and developments constantly in the pipeline, such as the current Pavilion restoration project, job opportunities are always available, not only in obvious front line roles but also in construction, building development, accounting and finance.Much of this information resides firmly in the hands of good employment agencies, such as Daniel Adams. This type of in depth and on-the-ground knowledge is essential for job-seekers as they need to know the nature of the overall employment sector as well as the more specific opportunities which arise in particular companies and projects. Firms are now advertising for permanent positions more often, moving away from only using employment agencies to fill temporary positions, as they discover that these agencies actually provide a better and more consistent employment service than their own in-house HR teams who may be trying to fill a number of posts at the same time.
