Established in 1889, West Suffolk was an English administrative county until it was combined with East Suffolk in 1974 as part of the Local Government Act 1972.
Although it's no longer an official county, the various settlements in what was once West Suffolk still offer plenty of options for job seekers looking for positions. Indeed, just some of the towns and villages include Bury St Edmunds - the former county town of West Suffolk - Sudbury, Newmarket, Haverhill and Mildenhall.
Historically, West Suffolk was known for producing cloth and during the Middle Ages, there was a thriving cloth trade in the region.
Brewing and malting have long been important industries for the region, while sugar beet processing has also given a boost to the local economy.
Greene King - the UK's largest British-owned brewery - was established in West Suffolk in 1799, while smaller names include the Old Cannon Brewery and Bartrums Brewery.
British Sugar was established in 1936 and it has been processing sugar beet for the Silver Spoon brand at a factory in Bury St Edmunds since 1925.
Other notable businesses include chocolate company Hadleigh Maid, biotech firm Genzyme and International Flavors and Fragrances.
