Situated in the north-west of England and sharing a border with Scotland, Lancashire, North Yorkshire, Northumberland and County Durham, Cumbria is one of England's largest ceremonial counties and it includes settlements like Carlisle, Penrith and Kendal.
Throughout the region's history it has mainly been a rural location known for its stunning mountains and lovely towns and villages. It contains the Lake District National Park and those seeking vacancies in Cumbria will certainly enjoy having this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty right on their doorstep.
People have been living in Cumbria for thousands of years. The Castlerigg stone circle was built by Neolithic people around 3200 BC, while later inhabitants included the Romans, Angles and Vikings.
By the 19th century, mining had become an important part of the local economy, producing iron ore and coal, while a number of slate quarries established during that time are still in operation today.
These days, there are many large companies based in Cumbria, while plenty more have large facilities in the area. Many of these employers are based in manufacturing - in industries ranging from petrochemicals to food manufacture, steel production, paper making and packaging.
Just some examples include Sealy Beds, Corus, The Stobart Group, Kimberly-Clark, Carr's, McVitie's, Nestle, Heinz, Lakeland and GlaxoSmithKline.
