A city located in Lancashire, Preston is an area that has been settled since Roman times. In 1179, it was granted a Guild Merchant charter, making it a market town, and by the 13th century the city was known for its textile production.
During the Industrial Revolution, the city underwent rapid growth, particularly as innovations in textile manufacture helped to increase production.
In the early 20th century, the cotton industry fell into steep decline and this was slowly replaced by the manufacture of electrical goods, heavy industry and engineering.
These days, those seeking roles in Preston will have a number of options to consider. James Hall and Co is a haulage supplier based in the city - they are the distributors for SPAR stores in the north of England and ship a wide range of goods to more than 450 shops in the region.
Meanwhile, other companies with facilities in the area include Matalan and Alstom Transport. A large call centre for the Carphone Warehouse and TalkTalk is also based in Preston.
In addition, the military aircraft HQ of BAE Systems and other divisions of the firm are based on the outskirts of the city and in neighbouring communities like Warton.
