Hiring temps in Reading

Reading is a historic market town in Berkshire and important commercial centre for the Thames Valley region. The town has long been associated with information technology, with companies such as Microsoft and Oracle having their headquarters there.

The average salary in Reading is £31,904 per annum, which is above the UK average.

With an unemployment rate of just 0.5%, Reading is a great place to hire temporary workers. TempaGoGo makes the process easier with a free-to-use online platform that puts you in touch with local agencies within 5 minutes.

Berkshire’s largest town has a population of 163,000, two thirds of which are defined as ‘economically active’ (between the ages of 16-65).

The arrival of the Great Western Railway in the 19th century enabled the town to become an important manufacturing centre, when it became specialised in the ironworks industry.

In the 21st century, the town is very well connected to London, Oxford, Bristol, Wales and the south coast, and thus plays an important strategic role as a national transport hub. Europe’s busiest airport, Heathrow, is located just 25 miles to the east.

Reading lies on the M4 Corridor, a cluster of high-technology companies that has been dubbed ‘England’s Silicon Valley’. Amazon, Panasonic, Dell and O2 are just some of the big companies that have helped attract jobs and investment to the region. 14% of Reading’s economically active are engaged in Information and Communication roles, more than twice the UK average.

It’s not all just big names! Reading is second only to London its concentration of SMEs, and the town is ranked 2nd nationally for the number of businesses per 10,000 population.

Information and Technology companies also flourish as a result of the high student population. Reading University is part of the prestigious Russell Group of top UK Universities, and the city of Oxford is in close reach. 54% of Reading’s residents possess high qualifications (NVQ4 or above) a higher proportion that across the South East (42%) and across Great Britain as a whole (39%).

In total, almost 60% of Reading’s population is employed in managerial or professional roles, which reflects the area’s status as a technology hub.

The town is also an excellent place to hire temps in admin and retail roles. Reading attracts customers from a wide catchment area, with numerous shopping centres and a pedestrianised centre in Broad Street.

With this prosperity and strength of local talent, expect to see some upward pressure on wages.

And, Reading’s growth is not showing any signs of abating! According to one study, Berkshire’s largest town is set to be the UK’s fastest growing economy between 2018-21.
