Find jobs in Essex and Essex career opportunities with inclusive employers


Essex is the seventh most populous county in England with roughly 1.39 million residents. Being that it borders London to the south-west, some areas of the county are considered part of the Greater London area. It is possible that when looking for jobs in Essex, some of the listings will actually be designated as London.


Having said that, the northern portions of the county are largely agricultural by nature. Industry and commerce are mostly relegated to the southern portions. The good news is that Essex is home to a number of important sectors including manufacturing, financial services, and tourism.

You can begin your search for jobs in Essex here at Diversity Jobs. You can search by using the categorised links on the left of this page or by entering desired keywords into our search tool. Either way, you will find your job search fast and easy. What's more, each of our listings provides all of the information you need to make an application decision.

Financial Services

Given that London is considered the financial capital of Europe, it makes sense that a number of financial services companies would be based in outlying areas – including Essex. Companies of note operating in the financial services sector include State Street Corporation, Equity Insurance Group, the Bank of New York Mellon, and Brents Insurance.

Financial services jobs are offered at a range of levels and salaries depending on experience and education. Some entry-level positions will also be available at the retail level.

Industry and Manufacturing

There are literally hundreds of businesses engaged in primary, secondary, and tertiary industry throughout the southern regions of the county. The Ford Motor Company's British headquarters is located in the town of Brentwood. The county has a heavy presence of metalworking, plastics, electronics, glass making, and food and beverage manufacturing.

Essex's strong manufacturing base provides jobs for white and blue collar workers alike. It also supports a very good retail sector that stretches from the edge of London's city limits to the central part of the county. To the north, the retail sector mainly supports tourism and the needs of local agricultural communities.

Essex tourism

Essex officials have been working hard over the last couple of decades to take advantage of the natural outflow of tourism to London. One of the most notable projects is the Adventure Island Amusement Park that first opened in 1976. Its home at South-at-Sea is one of the few seaside resort areas continuing to grow and expand.

Tourism continues to provide plenty of employment in the southern regions of Essex. It is not a bad place to look for work at a restaurant, hotel, retail shop, transport company, etc. We have some of those jobs available here on our website.
