Crewe is a large industrial town in the northwest of England. Situated ideally as a major trainline junction into other northern towns and cities, Crewe has a rich rail history dating back to 1843 and is one of the few towns named after a station, rather than the other way round. It is now a popular area for families as it has links to Manchester, Chester, Liverpool, and the south of England, meaning it offers residents good transport links to commute to work.
However, with a population of over 70,000, Crewe has a large economy of its own, with multiple opportunities for employment in and around the town, often via some very large companies. If this interests you, continue reading below.

Crewe, like many towns, has a high street with regular local amenities; butchers, restaurants, news agents and pubs which provide many locals with work. The town is also home to supermarkets such as Asda, Morrison’s and Tesco, with these employing hundreds of people.
The town also has a strong automotive economy, being home to car showrooms, factories and finance houses. Due to Crewe’s easy access to the surrounding countryside, many workers seek employment in the nearby villages of Sandbach, Nantwich and Alsager on local farms. This gives the area a healthy balance of town and countryside as you have the option to work manually, in an office or for yourself.
