Finding work in Milton Keynes presents a unique challenge - like the town, most of the businesses are quite 'new' and therefore employ only a few people. There are plenty of businesses providing work for the quarter of a million people who live in Milton Keynes but an astonishing 86 per cent of them employ fewer than 20 people. There are the bigger employers of course: Milton Keynes Council, Open University, the NHS, Argos, Asda, Santander, BP, Cadbury, Coca-Cola and BT all have employment centres in or around the Buckinghamshire town. But how do you target your CV at the hundreds of smaller companies? The easiest way might be to register your CV with LocalRecruit (see the Upload Your CV button on this page).
The unique profile of employment in Milton Keynes does mean an exciting range of jobs requiring a good selection of skills. Make sure your CV is targeted to the company you are applying to. Research the company either via their website (or by phoning their human resource manager) to find out precisely what skills they are after.

Milton Keynes' companies do lean towards the skilled and managerial professions so will favour graduates or those who have gained either good academic or vocational skills. However, if you're lacking in those or just want part-time work, fear not! The companies, shops, restaurants and leisure services in Milton Keynes require plenty of service staff as well. Milton Keynes was deliberately built at the mid-point between Birmingham, London, Leicester, Oxford and Cambridge so if you don't mind an hour's commute cast your job-hunting net further afield.
