This West Yorkshire town is one with a proud history - but is also perhaps one of the UK's most contemporary cities. Those 'dark satanic mills' of old which powered the city's rise as a textile centre have long since gone but today the city remains a powerhouse in a different way. Many UK headquarters are based in this town, making good use of the 300,000 workforce available within the city - and also the good links to Leeds and surrounding metropolitan areas. Provident Financial, Morrisons, Hallmark Cards and the Yorkshire Building Society are just a selection of the big names with either HQs or a significant presence in the town.

Office and administrative skills should see you into a job if you live in or around Bradford. But don't just think that's a life doomed to inputting data on a computer. The skill-set is wide and varied. And given the numbers of employees in big companies, your rise up the ladder to middle management could be achieved within four or five years. There is more to Bradford of course than business administration. Culture plays a large part in the lives of Bradfordians and the National Media Museum is the flagship in this sector. But theatres, galleries and museums throughout the city offer part-time or full-time careers. The Victorian village of Saltaire with its collection of David Hockney paintings offers an eclectic mix of tourism jobs. And for the more modern tourist, the shopping centre of Bradford with the Kirkgate and Forster Square shopping malls offer a great range of jobs.
The Provident Financial Group employs 500 people at its Bradford headquarters to look after its 1.6m customers. The skills they seek are typical of this sector: ambitious self-starters who are keen for success. The range of jobs include canvassers, clerks, collectors and managers. Provident use personality and aptitude tests - but emphasises these are not taken on their own when looking for new staff. You can't 'cram' for these tests but a surf of the net will tell you what sort of questions to expect. Just answer them honestly and they will help you find the right sort of job for you. Once employed, Provident and other companies will set you on their own induction programme and then more specialised training to help you do the best at your job.
