Looking at the statistics, prospects for finding a job in Aylesbury should be a doddle: it has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Perhaps it's the sparse population compared with the surprisingly high number of companies. They're scattered not just about the industrial estates around the town but further into Aylesbury Vale. And the town is also the home to Buckinghamshire County Council - surprisingly rather than Buckingham.

The town is also at the heart of an historic agricultural centre. The Aylesbury Vale still has many working farms and it's a sector that appeals to a growing number of school leavers. Once the Vale runs out, you come into the Chiltern hills which open up a wide selection of jobs in the tourism and leisure industry. This is the playground for many London workers (even the prime minister's country home is nearby at Chequers!) and that generates some intriguing career options.
The engineering jobs on offer in this part of the world are high-end intricate work. Here you will find aerospace, defence and space technology firms - the likes of Ampac, ComDev and Goodrich Power Systems. So there's a need for electrical, chemical, materials and many other specialist engineers. If you're looking to do A-Levels then ensure you have opted for maths and physics to line up a route to a university degree in engineering. And consider apprenticeship schemes as a way of learning and earning at the same time.
We'll always need food so in theory at least this is a recession-proof industry! Choose from joining the processing/distribution side with a job at Aylesbury Vale firms such as Schwartz (the spice people), Dayla Ltd or M&J Seafoods. But consider as well jobs at the production side with work on a farm. Don't think this is a low-skilled jobs. Farms are high-tech industries requiring degree-level managers to eek out profits from a sector with notoriously small margins. Farm managers, arboriculturists, horticulturists are just some of the careers available.
