What jobs are there in Lancashire?

Comprised of the likes of Blackburn, Bolton, Chorley and Preston, Lancashire used to be a manufacturing county. However, from the 1900s to the 1950s, Blackpool heavily relied on tourism for its economy. It still does, however retail is now a much bigger part of the city’s economy, providing opportunities for store managers, warehouse staff, drivers and retail assistants. Most people are employed in human health and social work. This includes doctors, nurses and caretakers. The NHS provides these jobs not only for healthcare but for administration as well. Careers in arts, entertainment and recreation have steadily increased over the years as Blackpool was swiftly regenerated. This opens doors for playwrights, actors and musicians due to the fact that Blackpool regularly hosts festivals, plays and musicals.

Companies with a presence in Chorley include BAE Systems, FedEx and Telent. The town is also the home of the Chorley Cake, which is an event that promotes its cakes. A competition is held for local bakers to produce the largest ever Chorley cake.
