Northamptonshire is the county most threatened by automation in the UK, according to research by think-tank Localis in collaboration with Sky News.
Corby, Wellingborough and Daventry all feature in the top 10 places most at risk of "cliff-edge automation".
In numerical terms 31.1 per cent of jobs, or 10,323 jobs, are at risk in Corby; 28.9 per cent or 10,430 jobs in Wellingborough; and 28.5 per cent or 11,360 jobs in Daventry.
Nineteen-year-old Reece Manly-Foster, from Corby, has worked short-term jobs in factories and warehouses in the last two years. He told Sky News: "It is bad in Corby. It really is. Because there are hardly any jobs going.
"I tried to apply for a warehouse but the only job that was going was through the robots. But I had no idea, because I'm not trained, which means I can't work there.
"I know for a fact that most factory work will be overtaken by robots, which means there's going to be fewer people working, which means there's going to be people out of work."
A study by PricewaterhouseCoopers published in February predicted waves of automation.
