Jobs in Chester, United Kingdom

Chester is a charming city in the North West of England, close to the Welsh border. A city steeped in history; Chester is known for having the most complete and well-preserved city walls in Britain, its racecourse being the oldest active sports arena in the nation, and for the many Roman remains scattered throughout the city that was once one of three major Roman army bases. It was voted the prettiest city in the UK, and the 5th prettiest city of the continent in 2013 by a USA TODAY poll, beating out the likes of Venice, Rome, and even Paris!

Economy of Chester

Chester’s main industries are those of tourism, retail, public administration and financial services. The financial sector includes corporations like Bank of America, NFU Mutual, HBOS plc, Virgin Money and M&S Bank. The city also has its very own world class university, the University of Chester, which contributes an estimated £135 million to the economy, employing over 2000 people.

Over the past 10 years, a plan by the Chester Council to turn the city into a tourist hotspot has led to a massive £1.3 billion investment. Dubbed the “Chester Renaissance” by onlookers, it’s involved the creation of a new car park, bus stations, a library as well as new homes and retail spots, amongst other things. The project has created thousands of new jobs, as expected.

Life in Chester

Chester is home to the North West’s most popular tourist attraction, Chester Cathedral, as well as the most frequented wildlife attraction in the UK in the form of its zoo. It’s the hometown of current James Bond, Daniel Craig.

In 2015, it was named the best place to live in the UK by UK Hot Housing Index, taking into account real estate prices, employment levels, and local purchasing power. Other factors cited were its proximity to larger cities and excellent quality of education.
