Working in Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton is a great place to live and work!

Home to around 250,000 people the city boasts a good range of independent and high street retailers, lots of places to eat and drink, a newly refurbished theatre, independent and multiplex cinemas, popular live music venues, sports and leisure centres, excellent schools, and a growing university, along with Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, Martson’s Brewery and, of course, City of Wolverhampton College – rated top in the West Midlands region for both student and staff satisfaction.

There’s great transport links too via the M6, M6 toll, M5, M54 and M42, as well as the rail network, Midlands metro and bus routes, and links to over 100 foreign destinations from Birmingham Airport.

And with major companies like JLR, Wiggle and Debenhams making multi-million pound investments in the city, plans to transform the city centre, the development of 10,000 new homes, and a commitment from business partners to train and develop new and existing staff to create a workforce of the future that is equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to continue the city’s success, it certainly has a bright future ahead.
