Haywards Heath Overview

Haywards Heath is an important town for those commuting to the wider West Sussex area, with a local train station and good road connections providing easy access to the north and south. The town is home to around 23,000 residents, all of whom are well-served with numerous shops, leisure centres, restaurants and bars. While many residents commute out of town for work, jobs in Haywards Heath are strong in the service and agricultural sectors. Average house prices in the area (£365,000) are higher than those in Burgess Hill to the south-west, but are still favourable in comparison to property prices in towns such as Cuckfield and Lindfield, according to rightmove.co.uk.

Haywards Heath Job Opportunities

As the Mid-Sussex District Council is based in Haywards Heath, the town offers a number of job opportunities in administration. Administration jobs require workers with adaptable skill-sets, especially in small companies and organisations, where job roles can change from one moment to the next. Receptionists, payroll managers and project managers are just some of the positions often advertised in this sector. In the service industry, the variety of shops, banks and restaurants provide a range of jobs in Haywards Heath, not least in customer service. Regardless of whether the role is for a finance assistant or a contract centre manager, customer service jobs require good skills for communicating with the public effectively.

Haywards Heath Employment Trends

Haywards Heath is currently the subject of an ongoing District Council Masterplan to renovate the town centre. The plans, which include implementing new facilities at the local railway station, will aim to modernise the area and draw in greater numbers. In terms of job trends, the percentage of those employed in the Mid Sussex area from January 2015 to December 2015 was 80.7%, which was higher than the average for the South East and wider Great Britain. More specifically, healthcare is a sector that's set to grow over the coming years due to an ageing population.
