City: Birmingham

Constituent state: England

Country: United Kingdom


Northfield is an area in south-west Birmingham, England. It is also a council constituency, managed by its own district committee. The constituency includes the smaller Northfield ward, and the wards of Kings Norton, Longbridge and Weoley.It is perhaps most famous for the Austin Rover car factory which was in the Longbridge Ward. This factory was built in 1905 making Austin cars, and gradually expanded over the next 70 years to build higher volumes of vehicles by successive carmaking combines including BMC, British Leyland, Austin Rover, Rover Group and most recently MG Rover. In April 2005 MG Rover went bankrupt with the loss of more than 6,000 jobs. The company assets were bought by Chinese carmaker Nanjing Automobile three months later, and low volume production began in May 2007 with just over 200 workers employed at the factory making MG TF sports cars. However, the majority of the factory site was demolished, with plans to regenerate the area with a new town centre for Longbridge, new shops, parks and homes, which it is claimed will help with the unemployment suffered by the former workers of the Rover factory. Other developments are planned for a park and ride for the station, with some buildings owned by Centro trains to be demolished to make way for it.[1][2]
Jennifer Hi, Northfield is just on teh edge of Birmingham City / District. as a nurse i believe there may be demand for your skills! As a photographer you have have news papers, magazines, etc.. that may require your services? There are many jobs / hospitals in the Birmingham area and working as a trainee nurse may be a good way to proceed? I unfortunatley love taking photos- but am not an expert in this field and not too sure about the amount of vacancies available- but you can have a lookat the following websites: ; ; , - these sites have nursing jobs and photography type jobs advertised! good luck and i hope this has been of some assistance?
