Worthing Overview

On the south coast of West Sussex, Worthing is a Georgian resort town with a landmark pier. Situated to the east of Brighton and Hove and near the South Downs, it is the twelfth most populous urban area within the UK in conjunction with nearby Littlehampton. During recent years, the centre and seafront of Worthing have undergone regeneration. The area is popular with visitors - generating extra seasonal work, particularly in transport jobs and communication roles at nearby Gatwick Airport in Crawley.

Worthing Job Opportunities

Jobs in Worthing tend to be within the distribution, hospitality (hotels and restaurants), banking, finance and business services sectors. Swiss electronics company LEMO has a headquarters in North Street, while other employers include HMRC, Southern Water in Yeoman Road and pensions annuity company MGM Advantage. Current vacancies predominantly feature sales, health and social care, engineering, accountancy and financial services posts. Other regular vacancies include customer service and workshop operative positions, while public employment is also advertised by Adur and Worthing Borough Council, which has offices in Chapel Road.

Worthing Employment Trends

In general, West Sussex is a small firm economy - three quarters of businesses employ four or less members of staff. Earning levels for Worthing residents are generally lower than the rest of West Sussex and southeast England, although still higher than the national average.

Although the town has very good links to London, Portsmouth and Gatwick airport, surveys have shown that Worthing residents tend to limit their commuting distance and time. An unusually low proportion (less than 10 per cent) of employees reported travelling more than 30 kilometres. This suggests that in Worthing, workers may be happy to accept the advantages of local employment in exchange for a slightly lower remuneration.
