Working in Lichfield
Lichfield District is nestled in the beautiful county of Staffordshire, just a short drive from England’s second city – Birmingham. The district was formed in 1974 by a merger of the existing City of Lichfield with most of Lichfield Rural District. There are 25 parish wards in the district, with the city of Lichfield and the town of Burntwood being the two major urban settlements.
With excellent schools, the district has a highly skilled workforce and economically active population. The district provides fantastic connections to the rest of the Midlands and UK. It is a meeting point for three major roads: the M6 Toll, the A38 and the A5 and is within easy reach of the motorway network. Lichfield is Staffordshire’s premier heritage city nestled in the heart of the country’s most creative county. With a small but buzzing city that’s steeped in culture a stone’s throw away from beautiful countryside and rural villages. There is plenty to discover in the city, from our Lichfield Historic Parks and the Lichfield Garrick theatre, to the stunning Lichfield Cathedral and the Birthplace Museum of Lichfield’s most famous son, Dr Samuel Johnson of the dictionary (and Blackadder) fame!
In normal times the city plays host to a series of festivals, including our very own Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park, as well as Lichfield Food Festival, Lichfield Festival, Lichfield Bower, Fuse, and many more. It is packed with independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars – a lovely place to live and visit.
The wider district also boasts plenty of treasures from the thrill of Drayton Manor Theme Park, to the serenity of the National Memorial Arboretum and the beauty of Chasewater Country Park and Fradley Junction.
There are so many reasons to Visit Lichfield, but we are sure you’ll want to stay!
