Guess which is the main industry in Blackpool? If you said tourism that ringing sound in your ears is the QI klaxon sounding! Public admin, education and health employ more than tourism. To be fair, it all depends how you count the statistics. Tourism is certainly the most public employer and provides thousands of jobs - even if many are part-time or seasonal. And a decision to reinvigorate the sea front and holiday sector around South Beach through schemes such as Invest in Best has led to a valiant fight back by Blackpool in an age of cheap flights abroad.

Blackpool sits on the west coast of Lancashire and the Blackpool Urban Area takes in Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Blackpool and Lytham St Annes. This is the area providing jobs for the locals through dozens of small and medium-sized enterprises. Watch out for the companies establishing themselves at Blackpool & Fylde Industrial Estate, Whitehills Business Park or the Blackpool International Business Park (next to the airport). Further afield, the M55 leads to Preston and businesses such as BAE Systems offering a range of manufacturing and engineering jobs.
Public Admin is a horribly vague description of a wide range of rewarding careers. It covers both central government and local government work, serving the 100,000 plus people living in the Blackpool area. The most public face of the government's civil service operations in Blackpool is the National Savings and Investments Centre in the town - not least because it's also home to Ernie. The Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment (Ernie) picks out the Premium Bond winners. Blackpool Council is the local government provider and jobs range from architects to waste management. Just think of all the services the council provides and what jobs they entail.
Don't ignore the obvious. Tourism offers many seasonal or part-time jobs but the hotels and conference venues will also offer rewarding careers in this sector.
