This growing town in Northamptonshire has a population of 61,300 people, which is the fastest growing population in England. The town was once known as "Little Scotland" as a result of the numerous Scottish migrant workers who came here for its steelworks. In fact, almost 20% of the current population was born in Scotland giving the town a unique culture.
The town is located along the A43 and is just ten minutes from the A14 at Kettering. It is situated within two hours drive of four international airports: Birmingham, Luton, Stansted and East Midlands. A train station was opened in 2009, with services to London St Pancras. The Willow Place shopping precinct was opened in 2007, and subsequently the nearby Parkland Gateway development was built, including an Olympic sized swimming pool and civic hub. The nearest universities are the University of Northampton, the University of Leicester and De Montfort University in Leicester.

Employment in the town is very strongly biased towards manufacturing, and this sector accounts for over a third of jobs in the town, twice that of the national average. Most industry is focused in industrial estates located on the outskirts of town, including the manufacture of Fairline Boats. RS components and Amy's Kitchen, as well as Weetabix Limited, are the other main companies based here. Steel is still manufactured here, but not on the same scale as at its peak in the 1960s.
A survey by Oxford Economics found that Corby was the least likely to suffer from an economic downturn. This is due to the manufacturing-centred economic profile of the town. A total of 64% of the town’s population is employed in the vulnerable service sector, much lower than the national average, and unemployment is also low at three per cent. While manufacturing offers a range of jobs on the operations side, you should also consider entering companies in the finance, HR, marketing or sales departments.
