This town in Nottinghamshire is surrounded by a pocket of steep hills within the Maun Valley. The town itself has a population of around 67,000 but the population including the urban area around the town reaches nearly 100,000. The town is the northern terminus of the A38, which runs from Cornwall and is the longest 'A' road completely within England. Its location in the Midlands means that Mansfield can be reached in around 10 minutes from several junctions off the M1 and is just under 20 miles from the A1 at neighbouring Newark-on-Trent.

Leisure is a big part of the economy here. Leisure facilities are available at the swimming and fitness complex, the leisure centre and the local bowling alley. As well as this, there is a thriving theatre company and a multiplex cinema close to the town centre where a variety of restaurants, fast food outlets, pubs and nightclubs can be found. Leisure is a sector which offers both part-time and long-term career options. Some work experience - even a few hours on the front counter - will look good on your CV. If you're looking to a career in leisure, then you're heading into management and will need the requisite personnel and communication skills.
The public sector is one of the largest employers in the region. Mansfield District Council is a major employer in the area, as are the Sherwood Forest Hospitals, including the Kings Mill, Newark and Ashfield hospitals. In fact, over a quarter of people in employment in the town work in the public sector. Entry into this field can be made straight from school or as a post graduate. Watch out for work placement and similar schemes. Be prepared at the interview to demonstrate an interest in public affairs - so that means reading the local newspaper beforehand on the major issues facing the council or organisation you hope to join.
