Job Prospects in Bedford

Bedford Bridge

As the county town of Bedfordshire, Bedford is the commercial hub of the region and a multicultural melting pot. It is also well known for being the birthplace of Ronnie Barker and Carol Vorderman. Good transport connections make Bedford and its surrounding villages a popular commuter base for Milton Keynes and London but there are many opportunties closer to home.

One of the biggest employers in this town is Unilever, which has a food research facility at Colworth Science Park. This is where the company's new lines of frozen foods, ice cream and beverages are developed and researched. The high-tech site provides a range of local jobs for scientists, technologists and legal professionals.
