Jobs in Roswell, New Mexico, United States

Roswell is a city located in Chaves County in the US State of New Mexico. With a population of 48,000 it is the 5th largest city in the state.

Yes – this is the Roswell made famous by the 1947 UFO incident.

A City That is Out of This World!

Yes, Roswell is most famous as the place where aliens first made contact with the world / everyone lost their minds over a shredded weather balloon.

The UFO incident however has played a huge part in the history and modern development and, some could say, the very survival of the city itself. To give an idea of the extent that the UFO incident has penetrated the very fabric of the city, the local pro Baseball team is called the Roswell Invaders and they play in green uniforms (to look like aliens).

New Mexico is described as having something of a small town vibe, despite being quite a large city. This translates as a relatively family friendly city, which of course benefits from the attractive New Mexico weather.

It is not particularly well supplied with public parks and maintained open spaces  nor is there a wealth of entertainment, with only one movie theatre for example.

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 33.6
  • Median Household Income: $39,975
  • Median Property Value: $98,600
  • Cost of Living: 7% lower than state average, 12% lower than national average
  • Unemployment Rate: 7.7%
  • Crime Rate: 77% higher than national average

Alien Tourism

Tourism is the most important industry in Roswell, with the UFO incident of 1947 still one of the main forces driving visitors to come to the city – something it has embraced wholeheartedly. There is even a McDonalds in the city built in the shape of a UFO, if you truly want some out of this world chicken McNuggets.

… Apologies for that joke.

Retail jobs are 12% of the workforce, accommodation and food are 10% – both driven by the tourist trade.

Away from tourism, there is a manufacturing base here, with 2 major employers in town Millennium Transit Services who manufacture buses, and Leprino Foods who operate one of the world’s largest Mozzarella factories in the city. Manufacturing and related roles account for a healthy 7% of the workforce.

The largest employing sectors are healthcare (16%) and education (12%), with Mining (5%) and construction (5%) coming next. General Administration and professional and tech services n private industry are relatively low at 5% combined, meaning that most “white collar” office based jobs are in Government or healthcare related roles.
