Enfield may be a suburb of London but it retains its image as one of the 'leafy suburbs' thanks to a wide range of public parks, golf courses and open spaces such as Albany Park, Bush Hill Park, Jubilee Park, King Georges Field and the like. And a high proportion of the population stay within the borough boundary when they find employment despite the allure of jobs throughout London.
Historically, it will forever be associated with munitions and specifically the Enfield rifle but today there is a tremendous diversity in employment (and munitions no longer features!). This diversity is summed up in one surprising statistic: 85 per cent of the employers here have fewer than 10 employees. The few major employers in the borough include a number of food and drink manufacturers, distribution services, construction work and - the biggest of them all - public sector. The latter is a catch-all for health, education and local council work.

Working for one of the many smaller firms does have many advantages: A chance to quickly learn skills for all aspects of the business, a chance to prove yourself and 'get noticed' by the boss, and the opportunity to help the company grow. You'll find interviews with such companies a more friendly affair and more likely to be a one-to-one with the boss. Take time to learn about the company and be prepared to demonstrate skills outside of those specifically required for the vacant job. Working for a small company means everyone pulling their weight.
The contrast to working for the many small companies in here is working for the public sector. This generally offers greater job security (or at least transferable skills). And despite the cuts in the recession, we'll always need public servants be they nurses, teachers or those providing essential council services. Organisations in this sector will have more formalised job application procedures: watch out for work experience or similar programmes you can join. And graduates should inquire about specific graduate-entry schemes.
