Located in the west of England, Avon is a region that was once designated a ceremonial county and was named after the River Avon.
In 1996, the borders were redrawn and the region ceased to be an official county - it's now covered by a number of local authorities, including Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, as well as the City of Bristol.
The region has long played an important part in the country's history and economic growth, particularly since it was home to the port of Bristol. From the 14th to 19th centuries, it processed cargo from around the world, particularly cotton and tobacco from America.
These days, opportunities for roles in Avon can be found in a wide range of industries. There are numerous electronics and tech companies in the region, while the financial, communications and shipping industries also play a big part in the local economy.
One major employer is Defence Equipment & Support, which specialise in procurement for the MoD. Meanwhile, the aerospace industry holds a prominent position in Avon, with companies like BAE, Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Marconi having facilities in the area.
The Avon area is home to a number of universities and NHS trusts, while the tourism and retail sectors are also thriving, particularly in the larger towns and cities.
