Top 5 Coventry Jobs - Perfect Placement

Being the 9th largest city in England and the 12th largest in the UK, Coventry is unsurprisingly a hotspot for some fantastic automotive job opportunities.

Following the decline of the cloth and clock manufacturing in Coventry in the 18th and 19th centuries, Coventry quickly welcomed the following motorbike, car, and aircraft industries. Post-penny-farthing, this is the place Jaguar Cars chose to set up their research and design headquarters!

Awarded the UK City of Culture winner in 2017, this could be the perfect place to pursue your automotive career.

There’s plenty to do – boat ride down the River Leam, run a half marathon, or try one of the renowned Coventry Godcakes, a 700-year old tradition of baking a triangular puff pastry containing sweet mincemeat which is then sprinkled in sugar. It is well worth visiting the Coventry Transport Museum – containing, among other automotive historical artefacts, the Thrust Super Sonic Car a jet-propelled car which boasts the once fastest world land speed record of 763 miles per hour and was the first land vehicle to official break the sound barrier.
