What Jobs?

What jobs are there in Bradford?
As the birthplace of well-known artist David Hockney, Bradford is a city with many artistic opportunities. The well-deserved accomplishment of becoming the first UNESCO City of Film means there are many vacancies for dance and theatre, such as set designers, actors, lighting technicians as well as writers.

Historically called the West Riding of Yorkshire, Bradford originally became known for being extremely industrialised. South Asian migrants settled into Bradford after WW2, starting businesses in the automotive and electronics industries. The biggest employer in the area is Provident Financial PLC, specialising in finance and banking. With Little Germany and two shopping centres, there are many jobs in hospitality, catering and retail around the city. However, there is a high demand for both skilled and unskilled labour all over the city.

Morrison’s Supermarket was founded as an egg and butter merchant in Bradford over 100 years ago. Now headquartered in the city, it is the country’s 4th biggest supermarket and provides jobs for over 5,000 people. As textile manufacturing decreased over the years, jobs in IT and banking rapidly rose to keep up with the country’s booming economy. Despite the decrease in textile manufacturing, Bradford is still a major city for production. Key sub-sectors include printing and electronics.
