Grimsby, on the Humber Estuary sits on the North East coast of England south and east of the city of Hull. With a long history in the fishing and maritime industry, Grimsby is a famous British port and at its peak in the 1950s was the largest fishing port in the world. Industrialisation throughout the 19th and 20th centuries allowed for great strides in infrastructure, meaning that fresh Grimsby fish could easily and quickly be transported to Billingsgate Market in London.
The economy has changed somewhat since then, however, but remains deeply entrenched in the food industry. The city is still, in fact, the home to the UK's biggest fish market and is the largest centre of fish processing in Europe, although most of the fish now comes from Iceland and elsewhere in Europe. As such, the Findus Group, which includes Young's Seafood, is a major employer in Grimsby. Young's alone has a staff of 2500, and with Findus' corporate headquarters in the area, they too employ a large number of people.
As with anywhere in the country, it is advisable to search for employment in Grimsby through specialist recruitment agencies who know both the area and the industries and sectors that prevail in the area well. Many employers in the area will advertise staff openings through recruitment agencies and search for potential employees in this way.
