What Jobs?

What jobs are there in Oxford?

Oxford is known as one of Europe’s leading areas of innovation and scientific knowledge. There are many local science parks (e.g. Oxford Science Park is home to 60 science and technology-based companies in Bioscience and IT). Oxford is the ultimate place to be for data scientists, most types of scientists and those in computer-related careers like web developing.

Understandably given the combined existence of the elite Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University, the education sector is a crucial industry in the city. Around 67 per cent of Oxford jobs are centred around knowledge-intensive industries for the likes of researchers, professors, administrators and lecturers. Furthermore, the Oxford University Press provides many opportunities for journalists, novelists, publishers and researchers. With tens of thousands of students, nightlife in Oxford is a large part of the city lifestyle. Bartenders, musicians and servers will be able to find openings around the area.

Besides the universities, the National Health Service (NHS) is one of the largest employers in Oxford with The Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust being one of the largest teaching trusts because of the University.

Some of the top companies include Oxford Council, BMW, Midcounties Co-op and BT.

What is it like living in Oxford?

The average semi-detached house is around £500,000 whilst one month's rent for a 3-bedroom flat in the city centre can be up to £2,000.
