Bedford is a town of about 80,000 people situated in the heart of England, about halfway between London and Leicester. With its surrounding towns the population of the urban area tops 100,000, but it remains a relatively small town as county towns go. (In case you were wondering, it’s the county town of Bedfordshire.) The town has a largely rural past, but the growth in population has seen the usual diversity of small industries, retail and local government spring to life, and this is where the majority of the town’s employment comes from.
The world of TV, especially in the 1970s, would not have been the same without the Bedford influence. Sitcom stars Ronnie Barker and John le Mesurier were both born in the town, and much of Some Mothers do ’Ave ’Em was filmed in the town. Bedford also produced sometime Countdown maths genius and all-round numerically astute adder-upper Carol Vorderman.
As the largest town surrounded by several hundred square miles of countryside and within commuting distance from Milton Keynes, Northampton and Luton, Bedford has become something of a hub in the region. This does mean that sometimes positions come up to fill the town’s natural need for procurement, logistics and supply chain managers and executives.
