Job Prospects in Wakefield

Wakefield Cathedral

Wakefield suffered catastrophic economic times when the mining and manufacturing industries declined in the late 20th century but it has gone through a massive regeneration to bring it back to life as an economic force within the north. It's been helped by its geographic location, tucked inside the shoulder of the M62 and the M1. The good links with the northern industrial belt stretching from Liverpool to Leeds have encouraged business to set up home in Wakefield, particularly in the distribution sector with Argos, Asda and Morrisons having warehousing in the area.

Wakefield Essential Jobseeker Information

Public Sector

Part of the town’s success is down to its designation as the administrative sector for the region, including the 'five towns' of Normanton, Pontefract, Featherstone, Castleford and Knottingley. You'll find the base of many public sector employers here, including Wakefield Council, West Yorkshire Police, West Yorkshire Fire Service, Probation Service and National Offender Management Service. But manufacturing still remains a significant player -as does health and retail.
