Rugby job opportunities
For most of the 20th Century manufacturing was the largest employer in Rugby. Since the 1990s manufacturing employment has gone into decline, and service industries are now the largest source of employment. Rugby remains an engineering centre and has a long history of producing gas and steam turbines at the GEC and at the AEI. They used to dominate employment in the town. Engineering in Rugby is still the most important sector.
Since the 1980s several large industrial estates have been built to the north, and warehousing, distribution and light industry have become major employers. This is due to the town’s close proximity to the M6 motorway (Junction 1) and M1 (Junction 19), at the heart of the UK’s motorway network. In 2017 nearly half of Warwickshire’s businesses in the ‘Transport and storage’ sector were in Rugby.
