A city in the East Midlands and the county town of Leicestershire, Leicester was originally founded as a Roman settlement and those living or working in the area can still see some of the pavements and bathhouses that survive from that period.
For hundreds of years, Leicester thrived as a market town. Then in the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution led to a major boost in the city's wealth and population. The construction of an extensive rail and canal network also helped bring business, money and more people to the region.
During this period, Leicester became known for its shoemaking industry, while hosiery and textiles were also manufactured in the area. In addition, it was a hub of engineering and a financial centre.
In fact, Leicester's reliance on engineering has continued through to today, with a variety of companies like Jones & Shipman, Richards Engineering and Trelleborg - known for their machining of tools and equipment, as well as components for marine and industrial applications - all having offices in the city. Fabric and footwear are also still important parts of the local economy.
A number of large companies call this city home, meaning there's a wealth of opportunity for those seeking Health and Safety Director jobs in Leicester. Big names like Next, Goldsmiths, British Gas Business, Walmart and DHL all have head offices here, while around ten million bags of crisps are manufactured every day at the Walkers Crisps factory in Beaumont Leys.
