Finding work in a small town

Posted on June 10, 2018 at 1:24 pm

Living in a small town or village can have plenty of benefits but along with this can come frustrations when trying to find work. Often smaller areas have a lower cost of living, tight knit communities and you may be surrounded by beautiful countryside but when it comes to job vacancies you may find that there are very limited options available to you.

If you are looking to set up your own business then it is worth engaging with the local community to find out if there would be an interest in what you are looking to sell. Carry out some market research to find out what people are looking for and what prices they would be willing to pay. Social media can be a great way of doing this if you do not want to approach people face to face or simply do not have the time. Start a post in your local community page or even a poll asking for people’s opinions.

IF you are looking for employed work then you may want to drop your CV in to as many local businesses as possible. Also keep your ear to the ground for any local companies that may be expanding soon as they are likely to be looking for new members of staff.
