Crewe

Jobs in Crewe

There is no doubt about what Crewe is most famous for – it is the railways. Crewe is more than just a place that happened to have a railway junction nearby – it was virtually non-existent as a settlement until the railways came. Indeed, the town itself is named after the railway station it grew up around. Look at Crewe on a map and you’ll see six major lines emerging from it, heading to Shrewsbury/South Wales, Birmingham/London, Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester, Liverpool and Chester/North Wales.

Such a key point in the railway network made it the natural choice to locate railway works, and so it came to be. The town grew up quickly around the works, and as it grew in importance other related industries set up there. Crewe’s most famous single business was Rolls Royce, who located their car manufacturing plant there. Since 2002, however, production at the site is entirely of Bentley cars. Although there are still railway locomotive maintenance plants in the town, they are a shadow of their former selves.

Crewe now has a population of around 70,000 and has diversified greatly from its railway heyday. It is still considered a reasonably good place to set up a logistics operation, mainly due to its rail and road links (the M6 passes just to its east), so jobs in Crewe are not uncommon. Companies with a presence in the town include Bombardier, Bentley, BAE Systems, Air Products, Fujitsu and Barclay’s Bank.
