Luton and its neighbouring towns of Bedford and Houghton Regis make up an astonishing 250,000 people - a metropolis all of its own with two universities, airport, shopping centres and a number of large employers. The town benefits from an M1 link to London but also the breathtaking countryside in the form of the Dunstable Downs and Chiltern Hills. The centre is famed for its iconic town hall but it's the nearby Mall shopping centre which is the big attraction for most visitors. Luton is a major retail centre for the area with plenty of in-town and out-of-town stores.

Luton airport is close to hand and is, not surprisingly, one of the major employers for the area. Vauxhall Motors (owned by General Motors) remains one of the other major employers despite some tough times of late. Luton concentrates on the commercial vehicle side of the business but the securing of jobs at Vauxhall's Ellesmere car plant will have been a welcome vote of confidence for all.
Sorry for all those who still hear Lorraine Chase utter those immortal words but it's now officially London Luton Airport. The title echoes its links to London and underlines that this is the country's fifth biggest airport, catering for nine million passengers a year. Here you'll find the likes of Easyjet, Monarch, Ryanair and other big operators all offering a range of jobs. Monarch alone employs more than 3,000 people with jobs available in IT, Human Resources, Finance, Customer Services and sales staff, commercial, operations, marketing and media services.
The headquarters of Vauxhall is to be found in Luton where more than 1,000 are employed, principally in the manufacture of commercial vehicles. The company offers jobs for undergraduates, graduates and also apprenticeships. You'll find apprenticeships available for engineers, vehicle technicians and also those interested in the business administration side of the industry. Undergraduates can find work in everything from marketing, sales, finance, communications, purchasing and IT to health & safety, and engineering.
