The Wiltshire town of Swindon has the A to Z of employment opportunities - literally! Here you'll find Arval, the fleet and fuel management company... through to Zimmer orthopaedic equipment. With around 6,000 companies covering manufacturing, public service and creative industries there's a job to suit every CV. And with exciting plans in the pipeline for the town's development, it's little surprise that it's winning investment from both private and public sources.
Swindon's development all began in 1841 century when engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel decided to site works at the small market town for the building and repair of his locomotives. Today Swindon has nearly 200,000 residents - and it still has strong links with the rail industry. Here you will find the head office of the First Great Western - a train company offering employment in three main sectors: customer services, business support and operations.
