Leicester is a city based in the East Midlands of England in the county of Leicestershire. According to the 2011 census, Leicester is the tenth largest city in the United Kingdom with a population of 330,000. Leicester has great transport links with the M1 being close by, making it a quick and easy way to travel into London. With two airports nearby and great train links, it is a fantastic area for business.
There are many well know companies with Head Offices in the area, including; Dunelm Mill, Next, Jessops, Shoe Zone, Brantano Footwear & Goldsmiths. British Gas, Caterpillar, Wal-Mart, Topps Tiles and DHL. Leicester is historically well-known for the production of textiles, clothing and shoes.
Leicester is home to two universities, the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. The University of Leicester is a leading research led University & is consistently being ranked as amongst the top 20 universities in the UK.
Leicester has the largest economy in the East Midlands but despite this, the rate of those claiming benefits is significantly high, figures showing it sits 25% above the national average indicating high unemployment rates and those in employment working lower paid jobs. In May 2016, it was reported by the Office of National Statistics that Leicester has the lowest disposable income in the whole country.
Leicester City Council states that; the occupational structure of those living in the city is heavily biased towards manual labour. There are only two categories where the city has a higher proportion than England & Wales, and this is for plant and machine operatives and elementary occupations.
The biggest deficit in comparison to the national average is in managers and senior officials. Surprisingly, perhaps, the difference for professional occupations is only just over 1%.
There are further concerns over unemployment levels continuing to rise, with increasing likelihood of job losses and greater competition for vacancies that do arise.
