Job Prospects in Leicester

There's so much more to Leicester than Walkers Crisps, Leicester Football Club and Gary Lineker! The county town of Leicestershire has a population of about 300,000 and makes the most of its East Midlands location and transport links to the rest of the UK. The M1 to the west and the A1 to the east provide good north/south links while the M69 and M6 link up with Birmingham and the West. East Midlands airport is just a few minutes away giving links to UK cities and key European locations. A vibrant town centre makes this the shopping destination for many Midlanders and Leicester's two universities provide a knowledge-base that's attracting many employers.
