Other Employment Opportunities

Bourne is a small town so employment opportunities can be quite limited. For this reason some people in the town choose to commute to the near-by growing city of Peterborough that has a number of large business parks, along with some big national companies, including BGL Group (home to a number of iconic brands and businesses), Coloplast, Bauer Media Group, Perkins Engines Company Ltd, Russell Burgess and Ideal Shopping Direct. Commuting to Peterborough from Bourne typically takes around 30 to 40 minutes depending on traffic and the area of Peterborough you are commuting to. You can get to Peterborough from Bourne on either the A15 (to the south of Bourne) or via the A1 (by taking the A6121 to the west of Bourne and then coming off at Ryhall Road, through Great Casteron). There are also business parks in the near-by larger towns of Spalding and Stamford that offer further job opportunities to residents of Bourne.

For retail jobs, Waterside Garden Centre (located just south of Bourne) offers several opportunities in this sector, as do the various supermarkets in the town, including Tesco, Sainsbury's and Lidl. For younger people, including those looking for job whilst studying, the Bourne Leisure Centre offers a number of opportunities.
