Finding a job in East of England

East England Harbour

The East of England is made up of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. With a population of around 2.3 million people, the East of England offers a wide range of job opportunities.

For example in its cities, the financial services, education and retail sectors are prominent. In more rural areas and along the beautiful coastline manufacturing, renewable energy and tourism provide many job opportunities. There are also many vacancies in the adult social care and logistics sectors across all three counties.

Local organisations supporting people to find a job

There are many organisations offering online support to help if you are new to the job market, considering a change of career, need help with writing a CV or with interview preparation. If you are out of work and claiming benefits, you can also contact your local Jobcentre work coach for help and advice.
