Unsurprisingly, Exeter’s industrial history was built on its strong agricultural presence – where approximately 80% of the land across the wider region is used for farming. More recently it has grown as a logistics hub, linking the more rural areas across Devon and Cornwall to the rest of the UK via convenient access to the motorway network; the wider county has a relatively large manufacturing sector, focusing on textile, food, and paper. Because of its unique rural setting, Exeter branch’s radius is somewhat far-reaching compared to other locations, even incorporating towns as far east as Yeovil. Labour demand is on the increase, and where Brexit has curtailed the movement of European workers, this is set to intensify the labour shortage over the coming months.
