A county in the east of England, Norfolk is bordered by Lincolnshire, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire - the rest of it is surrounded by the North Sea.
There are a number of large communities in the region, which offer plenty of opportunities for those seeking positions. These include Norwich, the county town, as well as Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford.
During its early history, Norfolk was important militarily, as it was vulnerable to invasion. Therefore, many forts were built in the region to defend the coastline.
Norfolk's economy has largely been based in agriculture throughout its past, particularly in sheep farming and wool production. Cereals like wheat and barley, sugar beet and rapeseed are also commonly produced.
A number of large companies are based in Norfolk, or have large facilities here. Aviva is a multinational insurance company that was previously known as Norwich Union. Colman's is also based in Norwich - famous for its spicy English mustard, these days it also produces various sauces and gravies. Bernard Matthews Farms is also situated in the area.
The ports at Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn are both busy locations, particularly for bulk cargo and products like timber and steel. Meanwhile, the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership has been established to create an enterprise zone to aid new businesses in the green energy sector.
