Job Prospects in Coventry

Coventry Cathedral

Being 'sent to Coventry' is usually an insult, a phrase meaning people are going to ignore you. Have no such fears if you really are sent to Coventry - it's a warm and welcoming place with just enough of that warm Brummy accent to make you feel you're in good company. It is traditionally a car-making centre with the likes of Jaguar, Rover and Rootes at one time employing thousands of people here. Sadly, the car manufacture business has all but vanished but it's legacy is a strong engineering and knowledge base in the city.

The city of Coventry - almost completely rebuilt after World War II due to German bombing - sits alongside its bigger neighbour, Birmingham, in the West Midlands. And while many jobseekers are happy to commute to Birmingham, the city is capable of sustaining numerous large employers. The M6, M69 and M1 are close enough to ensure the city is a good transport hub for the Midlands and also attract shoppers, tourists and major business or cultural events.
