Rich in history, culturally diverse, awe-inspiring scenery and sites of key historic significance, Worcestershire is an excellent county to live, work, visit and invest.

Centrally located, close to motorway and rail networks and international airports at Birmingham and Bristol, the county stretches from Bromsgrove, Kidderminster and Redditch in the north, through to the Vale of Evesham in the east, to the Malvern Hills and the Cotswold town of Broadway in the south.  At its heart is the beautiful and historic city of Worcester.

Worcestershire has particular strengths in advanced manufacturing, agri-tech and IT and it has a growing cyber security specialism. The County is home to nationally and internationally recognised businesses including Worcester Bosch, Yamazaki Mazak, GKN, Halfords, Vax, Brinton’s Carpets, Morgan Motors and many more. Worcestershire is recognised as one of the best places in the UK to start up a new business.

The county has a skilled and well-motivated work force that benefits from good schools and colleges, one of the fastest growing universities in the country and a work-life balance that few other places can compare with.
