Halifax sits between the southern reaches of the Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales. It has an industrial heritage (mainly the wool trade) and indeed there remains a certain amount of light industry today. But the historic town and surrounding countryside also makes this a strong player in the tourism market. The town is within West Yorkshire but from a local government perspective, it is the administrative centre of Calderdale - a metropolitan borough that takes in Brighouse, Elland, Halifax, Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden. Bradford sits just to the east and the M62 provides good east-west links to Leeds and Manchester.

The clue as to which company is the biggest private employer lies in the name: Halifax. Well, actually it's Lloyds which now own the bank but the town will always be associated with the original Halifax Building Society (and from 1986 it changed to a bank). The other famous brand associated with this town is Mackintosh toffee - later merging with Rowntree as Rowntree Mackintosh, and now owned by Nestle. Think of Rolos, Toffee Crisps and Quality Streets!
Calderdale Council employs a staggering 9,000 people through such departments as education, planning, health, housing and tourism. Despite all the news about cutbacks in this sector, committed people will always be needed to deliver council services. It's an ideal career for school leavers, those wanting a change from working in the private sector or for graduates. A National Graduate Development Programme is operated by local government - it's a two-year programme with placements in a local authority, giving a taste of the wide range of jobs and skills required.
