Engineering Sector In Leeds & Bradford
The future of the sector in the region looks uncertain with 3% fewer jobs available in the sector by 2025. That’s not to say that the re won’t be opportunities in the sector, with upcoming developments such as HS2 creating a demand for skills. As the workforce begins to retire, there will also need to be focus on skilled engineering roles to fill the gap.
Historically, Bradford (and the wider Leeds City Region) was at the centre of textile manufacturing, and there is still a throwback to such a time with the British Wool Marketing Board & Bulmer & Lumb Group still calling Bradford home.
The Leeds City Region is also home to other major companies such as Hallmark Cards, Seabrook Crisps, Dephi Automotive & Arla Foods.
