Located in Berkshire, Slough is 22 miles west of London and ten miles from Heathrow airport. The borough is well-placed for travel to other parts of the country - or indeed other parts of the world - and it offers a wide range of options for those seeking vacancies.
Until the 1800s, Slough was mainly an agricultural area with apple orchards and plant nurseries. It was also known for brick manufacture. In fact, the blocks used to build Eton College all came from Slough. However, after the Great Western Railway was built, this part of the economy began to decline and industry was on the rise.
The Slough Trading Estate was established in 1920 and was one of the earliest examples of this kind of commercial property in the UK. At the time, it was used for repairing and reselling ex-army vehicles, after the first world war, and was home to a number of factories.
Since the mid 1990s, Slough's economy has shifted from manufacturing to information technology and the majority of the factories have since been shut down and replaced with offices.
Today, the Slough Trading Estate is the largest of its type in Europe, with more than 600 buildings, 500 companies and around 20,000 people working there on a daily basis. Current resident businesses include Mars, Fiat, LG, Ferrari, Fullers Logistics, Stanley Black and Decker and Telefonica O2.
In addition, Slough is home to various financial and business services organisations, while health and education are also responsible for a significant portion of the region's employment opportunities.
