Situated in the east of England, around 75 miles north of London, Peterborough is a cathedral city on the River Nene. As a centre of new business, the region has seen a significant amount of growth and it's a good choice for those seeking roles.
For much of Peterborough's history it led a quiet existence as a market town. When the abbey was re-classified as a cathedral in 1541, Peterborough became a city and started to expand.
The start of the Industrial Revolution, as well as the arrival of the railway, further boosted Peterborough's economy and by the mid-19th century, products like ironwork, bricks and elastic webbing were manufactured here.
A corn exchange was founded in 1860 and a beet sugar factory opened in 1926 - British Sugar maintains its headquarters in nearby Woodston, although production has moved to other locations.
In 1932, Perkins Engines was established to manufacture diesel engines and a variety of other industrial machinery companies also called the area home. Today, businesses in the manufacturing sector include Baker Perkins, Indesit and Peter Brotherhood.
The financial sector is also a thriving part of the local economy, with organisations like Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, BNP Paribas, Barclays Personal Investment Management, Diligenta, BGL and Churchill Insurance all having offices in Peterborough.
What's more, Peterborough is a hub for environmental industry and innovation, with companies like Natural England and the Environment Agency being based here.
