The metropolitan county of Tyne and Wear is located in the north-east of England, and is split into five boroughs - Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, Sunderland, North Tyneside, and South Tyneside. Given that the county is largely urbanised, it is home to a multitude of businesses - many of which operate within the Accounting and Finance Industry, or include a financial function within their in-house staff.
As well as business operating outside of the Employment Industry, Tyne and Wear is home to many recruitment agencies - and Agency Central is a great place to find one that works within your particular sector.

Simply use the search function on this page to find a recruitment agency that fits the bill, contact them, and very soon you'll be receiving professional assistance.
Although Tyne and Wear is not the largest concentration of Financial employment in the UK, a number of major businesses operate in the area - many of which recruit staff for work in this capacity. Of the five boroughs in the county, the most important in terms of Financial employment was Sunderland as of 2011. That year's Census showed that 3.9% (4,684) of employment in the borough was in the Financial and Insurance Sector - higher than in any other region within the county.
Major employers within the Financial Sector in the county include Barclays (which has a call centre in Sunderland), the Accountancy firm EY (which has a large office at Newcastle's CityGate complex) Tesco Bank (with its customer service centre in Longbenton), and the financial software firm Sage, which has its global HQ in Newcastle, to the north of the city.
