An English county in the region known as Yorkshire and the Humber, West Yorkshire is surrounded by Derbyshire, Lancaster, North and South Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.
It is home to a number of large metropolitan boroughs, each of which offers a variety of opportunities for those seeking jobs. These include the City of Leeds, the City of Wakefield, the City of Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees.
During the 17th and 18th centuries, the region's economy relied mainly on the wool and textile industries - this was given a significant boost during the Industrial Revolution as steam power and machinery increased production dramatically. Coal mining also helped to bring wealth to the area.
Today, the West Yorkshire area is still known for manufacturing and engineering, while financial companies, call centres, the service sector, tourism and retail are also important.
Supermarkets Morrisons and Asda both have their corporate headquarters in the region, while just some of the other companies that have regional or national offices in West Yorkshire include Nestle, Cummins Turbo Technologies, Hallmark Cards, Pace plc and Syngenta AG.
Financial and professional services companies like KPMG, Norwich Union, First Direct, Direct Line, Lloyds Banking Group, Yorkshire Bank, Bradford and Bingley and Zurich also all have large operations here.
