In the south west of England, Somerset is a mainly rural county with agriculture forming a major part of the local economy.
Job seekers looking for farming work may find opportunities in the county’s apple orchards, Somerset being famed for its production of cider.
The county is home to many open areas, with Exmoor National Park, the Mendip Hills and the Quantocks being most notable. These wide-open spaces provide a draw for tourists and thus there are jobs associated with the leisure and hospitality industries often available.
Retail, manufacturing and health and social care are also key parts of the county’s economy.
