Recruitment Agencies based in County Durham, North East, UK
During the 18th and 19th centuries, County Durham played a key role in the Industrial Revolution, becoming a cornerstone of coal and iron production, developing the worlds first passenger steam railway at Darlington as well as becoming an agricultural heartland in England's north-east.

Modernisation has forced County Durham to adapt, with its traditional industries of Shipbuilding, Mining, and Farming making way for growth in sectors such as Retail, Tourism, and Manufacturing. That change of approach means that County Durham's economy is now home to around 506,000 people - of whom just over 220,000 are in employment.
The area has over 15,000 businesses, with around 170,000 total employees. Overall, the annual value of County Durham's economic output is around £6.3bn.
