Industries within Bedford and what they have to offer…

Bedford has an above-average rate of employment with a workforce of over 80,000, 17% of which is within top-level occupations. As part of Bedford Boroughs growth plan, an additional 11,400 jobs are planned to come to fruition by 2035. In order to achieve this, Bedford Borough has proposed plans to develop its business parks, local businesses and transport links.

Transport Links:

Above all, Bedford is a prime location for work as it is situated within the Oxford to Cambridge corridor and is only 37 minutes from London via train. In addition to this, Bedford has excellent transport links with the A6 providing access to the West Midlands and London and the newly improved A421 and M25 providing access to Kempston, Milton Keynes and surrounds. Moreover, there is a total of 6,960 businesses within Bedford Borough alone and a total of 25,340 within Bedfordshire County. As a result of these great transport links, more opportunities are available to those willing to tap into what these 25,340 businesses have to offer.

In addition, there are 20 popular sites of employment surrounding Bedford with close access to these transport links. For example, Woburn Road Industrial Estate and Elms and Viking Industrial Estate are two busy and ever-growing sites and are home to a variety of sectors.
