With in excess of 5.2 million inhabitants, Yorkshire is the largest county in England. The county itself is split into geographical regions, and the whole area borders the likes of Lancashire, Cumbria and Derbyshire. Home to places such as Leeds, Sheffield and Scarborough, Yorkshire offers a mix of striking rural and historic areas as well as thriving urban living and working.
Given its size, it is no surprise that Yorkshire has specialist employment agencies that hire staff in the IT sector. Employers looking to fill temporary, contract or permanent positions can use these agencies for their recruitment purposes. They perfectly complement the county's other recruitment agencies who commonly advertise IT jobs along with those in other sectors.
Employment across all areas of Yorkshire is generally high. In West Yorkshire, which is home to Leeds where a large concentration of Data Analysts are situated, the employment rate is 71.3%. The level is the same in South Yorkshire, while in North Yorkshire, employment is close to 80%. The salaries for IT occupations in the area differ, understandably so given how vast the county is. IT Technicians can earn anything from £20,000, while other roles such as Support Analysts, can command a salary of anything between £25,000 - £30,000.
The sheer size of Yorkshire means there are plenty of IT job opportunities. The East Riding region of the county houses an office for Media news agency, the Press Association, which often advertises IT roles alongside its other vacancies. Elsewhere, the county is home to Data and Technology companies including Acxiom Ltd in Normanton, where Business Analyst vacancies are often advertised.
Employment agencies in Yorkshire have an abundance of Software companies and Internet Data providers to recruit for. With a presence in Rawdon and Yeadon, the EMIS Group provides crucial IT Infrastructure solutions, while Plusnet, Quickline Communications and Equifax can all be found in Yorkshire.
