Like neighbouring Cornwall to the west, historically Devon has been disadvantaged economically compared to other parts of Southern England, owing to the decline of a number of core industries, notably fishing, mining and farming. Agriculture is an important industry in Devon.
The biggest population areas are Exeter, Torquay, Paignton, Plymouth and Exmouth – all on the coast. Geographically it’s significant as the southern point of the M5 and the gateway into the West Country via the A30 (the southern route).
As we entered 2016 Devon saw a decrease in unemployment levels, suggesting career prospects are looking positive for its population. The figures for those claiming job seekers allowance is bellow half of the average for the UK indicating there is an increase in job opportunities. If you need help seeking new career opportunities or exploring your options, you could take advantage of our career coaching programmes, or outplacement programmes for those going through redundancy.
The attractive lifestyle of the area is drawing in new industries which are not heavily dependent upon geographical location; Dartmoor, for instance, has recently seen a significant rise in the percentage of its inhabitants involved in the financial services sector.
Since the rise of seaside resorts, Devon’s economy has been heavily reliant on tourism and with some recent revival and regeneration of its resorts, particularly focused around camping; sports such as surfing, cycling, sailing and heritage. This revival has been aided by the designation of much of Devon’s countryside and coastline as the Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, and the Jurassic Coast and Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Sites.
In 2004 the county’s tourist revenue was £1.2 billion. Unique experiences in Europe are particularly concentrated on food and drink, the South West Coast Path and watersports, including sea-view restaurants in North-West Devon.
Incomes vary significantly and the average is bolstered by a high proportion of affluent retired people from across Europe’s major cities, particularly from the rest of England. Incomes in much of the South Hams and in villages surrounding Exeter and Plymouth are above the national average.
