As one of the UK’s fastest growing cities and with the second highest rate of jobs growth during the last century. Peterborough enjoys a robust and diverse economy, with five high performing industries.
6th most innovative city in the UK.
Peterborough benefits from abundant farmlands; with around 4,000 farms and 27,000 people employed within the agri-food industry. This generates over £4 billion annually to the economy and means that locally sourced produce creates a strong foundation for a sustainable food processing and manufacturing industry, which includes over 400 international and local food manufacturing and processing firms contributing over 6,000 jobs to Peterborough.
Advanced manufacturing and engineering also play a part as they provide solutions and equipment to a range of markets and sectors, including agriculture. With over 100 companies within this sector, and employing over 7,000 workers, the industry has helped Peterborough’s continued expansion, and become world leaders in this highly skilled area.
UK’s second highest rate of jobs growth during the last century.
An innovative city, Peterborough has seen investment and growth in energy and environmental, digital and creative, and financial sectors all adding to a GVA of £4,972 million, and planned investment in the future for a strong and sustainable economy.
As these industries continue to grow, it remains vitally important that management and staff are protected and educated in current HSE first aid industry standards and health and safety requirements.
