Jobs in Leicester

Home to the National Space Centre, Bradgate Park and Abbey Park - Leicester is a tourist favourite city situated in the East Midlands. The associated urban area is also the 11th most populous in England and the 13th most populous in the United Kingdom - and lies on the River Soar.

The name of Leicester is recorded in the 9th-century History of the Britons as Cair Lerion, and in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle as Ligora-ceastre. In the Domesday Book of 1086, it is recorded as Ledecestre. Leicester is one of the oldest cities in England, with a history going back at least two millennia. The native Iron Age settlement encountered by the Romans at the site seems to have developed in the 2nd or 1st centuries BC. Little is known about this settlement or the condition of the River Soar at this time, although roundhouses from this era have been excavated and seem to have clustered along the east bank of the Soar. The settlement seems to have controlled a ford across the larger channel. The Celtic tribe holding the area was later recorded as the Coritanians but an inscription recovered in 1983 showed this to have been a corruption of the original Corieltauvians. The Corieltauvians are believed to have ruled over roughly the area of the East Midlands.

In 2013, the discovery of a Roman cemetery found just outside the old city walls and dating back to ad 300 was announced. The remains of the baths of Roman Leicester can be seen at the Jewry Wall; recovered artefacts are displayed at the adjacent museum. During the 14th Century, the earls of Leicester and Lancaster enhanced the prestige of the town. Henry, 3rd Earl of Lancaster and of Leicester founded a hospital for the poor and infirm in the area to the south of the castle now known as The Newarke.

The construction of the Grand Union Canal in the 1790s linked Leicester to London and Birmingham and in 1832, the railway arrived in Leicester in the form of The Leicester and Swannington Railway which provided a supply of coal to the town from nearby collieries.

There are ten Scheduled Monuments in Leicester and thirteen Grade I listed buildings such as Leicester Castle and the Jewry Wall. The city hosts an annual Pride Parade, a Caribbean Carnival, the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India and the largest comedy festival in the UK - the Leicester Comedy Festival.

One of the best-known places in the city is Melton Road, near the city centre, which contains many diverse retail stores and restaurants for both locals and tourists. From clothing to fine cuisines, specialist bridal/groom makeup and home appliances.

The Leicester International Short Film Festival is an annual event; it commenced in 1996 under the banner title of ‘Seconds Out’.

Leicester is home to a number of famous faces, such as David Attenborough, Daniel Lambert, Peter Shilton, Thomas Cook, Richard Armitage, and Elizabeth Arnold. It is also home to a number of famous musical acts such as Kasabian, Showaddywaddy, Cornershop, Diesel Park West and Crazyhead.
