This Essex resort straddles the Thames estuary and incorporates many towns, such as Chalkwell, Eastwood, Leigh-on-Sea and Thorpe Bay. Good rail and road links with London make this a commuter town for many people. The A13 and A127 both lead into London, linking up with the M25 on the way.
The sea front ensures plenty of part-time and seasonal work but also encourages a number of arts and leisure events all year round. The spin-off is the jobs created in the hotel, food and drink industries. Its location on the "Thames Gateway" also means a number of careers close by in the distribution and freight markets. Southend Airport has become an integral part of the area's infrastructure.

The town benefits from a diverse economy and one of the major employers is Keymed Olympus. In just 40 years it's grown from a company of four people to nearly 1,000 with a purpose-built HQ based here and subsidiaries in Plymouth and Ireland. In 1986 it became part of the Japanese Olympus Corporation. The company produces everything from digital cameras to endoscopes and offers skilled staff plenty of incentives to join. Another major employer in this sector is Ipeco, who manufacure products for the aerospace and defence industries. And remember, both also need support staff in finance, catering, sales and clerical departments.
