Home to International Brands Carlisle is already home to many international and successful brands. The Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group recently moved their operations to Carlisle, opening a new headquarters in the city’s Historic Quarter. Around 6.5 million Custard Creams are produced in the city by McVitie’s each day and Cavaghan and Gray produce one million ready meals every week for Marks & Spencer’s. Engineering and manufacturing also flourish with Pirelli exporting a quarter of a million 4x4 tyres worldwide every month.


Carlisle-based Linton Tweeds has been a leading supplier of tweed to Chanel since 1920 so much so that there has never been a Chanel collection without it. Carlisle is also home to the legendary Eddie Stobart transport empire which is testament to the city’s excellent connectivity.


Whilst national brands and specialist businesses thrive, this is an area that benefits from a mix of businesses, established supply chains and relevant skills. A strong work ethic, loyalty, entrepreneurial spirit and resilience are all in the DNA of Carlisle people, giving rise to a hardworking and flexible workforce.


A University City


Home to the University of Cumbria, with its focus on innovative learning and preparing students for employment, partners in Carlisle continue to work together to create the next generation of entrepreneurs and enterprise. Growth in the student population affords its own opportunities for the city, with ambitious plans for a new state of the art city centre campus being actively progressed.


Play Hard Too There’s no better place to work hard because there is no better place to do your thing, whether that’s space to breathe or space for excitement. With the Solway Coast and North Pennines Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Lake District and Northumberland National Parks close by, the local landscapes offer unrivalled leisure and recreation opportunities. Coupled with the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall and the city’s distinctive shopping, leisure and cultural offerings, Carlisle is a destination for entertainment, fun and freedom.
