This market town in Surrey, located roughly 22 km from London, presents a quiet environment that enjoys all the infrastructure and facilities expected of a modern town. Epsom is home to just over 30,000 residents, most of them employed in the capital, but there are quite a few local sources of employment as well.
The town is well-connected with the capital city and other parts of the county – both by train (about 1/2 hour) and road (M25, M23, M3,M4). Entertainment, leisure and sporting facilities, several primary and secondary schools, North East Surrey College of Technology, University for Creative Arts and a race course at Epsom Down are but a few notable features of this town. Cost of living is reasonable, with monthly rents plus utilities ranging between £1000 and £1700 in Surrey. Average monthly earnings reportedly range from £1800 to £2,250.
Epsom Job Opportunities
Jobs in Epsom are mainly generated by the local Epsom and Ewell Council, as well as WS Atkins, an engineering and design consultancy firm. The Ashley Centre houses a range of famous retailers such as Hennes & Mauritz, Marks and Spencer, Burton and Lakeland which also provide a great source of retail and administration jobs in Epsom. The several schools in the town mean opportunities for teachers and school administrators. In general, sales jobs can be found relatively easily in the town, but careers in marketing, healthcare, accountancy and other sectors are also available in Epsom.
Epsom Employment Trends
The social housing development project approved recently is bound to offer employment in the construction sector. The project aims at building 30 new homes and a mini supermarket in an attempt to redevelop a shopping parade in Long Mead within the next few months.
