Think of Oxford and you think of dreaming spires (the university), the motor car industry and tourism. But you only have to scratch below the surface to discover there is much more - certainly with regard to potential careers. The city council, county council and public administration of the population requires a huge workforce with a wide range of skills, the health - epitomised by John Radcliffe Hospital - takes care of the well-being of the population and as a shopping centre it boasts a huge number of popular stores.

There's little doubting the huge knowledge and skill base available in Oxford - it seems the graduates just don't want to move away. Nearly half the population have a first degree or higher qualification. They provide a fantastic employment pool for the many world-leading companies in bioscience, advanced engineering, publishing and the like to be found around the city. But there's also fantastic opportunities for those possessing vocational qualifications and seeking a more hands-on career.
Oxford University Press, Newsquest (Oxford Mail) and many other smaller publishing operations provide work for those who have a creative outlet or are interested in the more technical side of the publishing process. Journalism is not just restricted to newspapers - the skills are required by TV, radio and also by marketing companies. If you have the ability to write, photograph or design pages then take a look at the publishing industries around Oxford or spread your net further by seeking out companies needing help in the marketing department. And Oxford's many internet companies are also seeking those with creative writing skills.
