The "city of a thousand trades" has produced many of the brand names you see around your home or on shop shelves - everything from Cadbury's Chocolate to Typhoo Tea. Manufacturing was the raison d'etre for this West Midlands metropolis for most of the 20th century. There is still much manufacturing in the region but as that industry started to decline, the city was quick to reinvent itself as the centre for new technologies, as a distribution hub and as a service capital of the UK. And with a population of over a million, the city is also a vibrant cultural and retail centre attracting visitors from throughout the Midlands, the rest of the UK and, indeed, the world. Millions of pounds of investment in the physical structure (and digital structure) puts this city well-placed for growth in the 21st century.

Just as the million residents of Birmingham require services from schools to clean streets, so too do the thousands of businesses require a wide range of services. This can be anything from cleaning, security, call centre staff, IT support, accountancy, personnel training, market research to specialist legal or financial advice. Working in this field can mean employment with a small support firm, as an agency worker or self-employed.
Birmingham's central location has made it the ideal spot for national conference centres. The NEC and International Conference Centre are the two best known but there are many other venues throughout the West Midlands. Such venues require diverse skills including organising, marketing, catering, security and admin. It's a fast-paced working environment but very rewarding.
