Employment in Shropshire
Traditionally known for agriculture, Shropshire has developed a service-based industry. The natural beauty of the area along with numerous historic attractions also drive a successful tourism sector.
Much of the area’s industry is focussed within towns such as Oswestry, Market Drayton, Telford, Whitchurch and Shrewsbury.
With the highest educational attainment in the West Midlands, Shropshire should have no shortage of talent in the future. The area currently has two higher education institutes with a third, an additional campus for the University of Chester, planned for Shrewsbury.
