What Jobs?

What jobs are there in Wolverhampton?
Wolverhampton was once part of the ‘Black Country’, which relates to the city’s history in coal deposits and the smoke for its old industry. Although mining is no longer Wolverhampton’s biggest export, the economy of the city is still based on engineering, including a large aerospace industry. The largest employer in the city is Wolverhampton City Council, which employs over 12,000 people. Mechanics and engineers became crucial to the city after Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Assembly Plant opened in 2014. The plant employs around 1,500 people.  

The service sector continues to pick up the economy, employing 74.9 per cent of the city’s working population. This means Wolverhampton has endless opportunities for retail assistants, managers, and call centre staff. The city centre is in the process of regeneration, building new homes, open spaces, and office buildings. Construction workers and architects alike are being hired during this exciting stage. There are no job shortages in Wolverhampton no matter the career, creative and non-creative sectors are always looking for proficient new team members to join.
