Page Personnel recruitment in Slough
Slough has been a largely rural community for many years, its fortunes changed thanks to the interests of Queen Victoria. Keen to reduce her journey times to and from Slough, she had a branch railway built from Windsor, which opened in 1849 that really helped the area to thrive. Page Personnel help candidates from across the region to tread in Victoria's royal footprints by commuting to work in Slough, or living and working in the town.
The 20th century transformed Slough's fortunes significantly, starting with the First World War when a large patch of farmland was industrialised as a repair depot for army vehicles and then, once the war ended, was given government permission to remain in operation as a peacetime industrial estate.
We work with clients and candidates alike to deliver added value and mutual benefits, based on many years of experience sourcing top talent for local businesses. In 2020, figures compiled by the ONS showed 95,000 people of working age living in Slough, with average earnings 7.5% above the UK average. Some 20,000 people work on Sough Trading Estate alone, Europe's large trading estate under single ownership and home to 500 companies.
