Recruitment Agencies in Sunderland, Tyne And Wear, North East

Based in the north-east county of Tyne and Wear, Sunderland has a strong shipbuilding history that once made it a centre for the manufacturing industry. Despite the decline in shipbuilding, manufacturing still plays a key role in the local job market, as do the IT, health and financial sectors. Recruitment therefore spans a diverse field of professions and employment agencies will help fill permanent, temporary or contract vacancies across the city and wider metropolitan borough.

As with most major settlements in the UK, the service industries now dominate recruiting demands. 77% of jobs in Sunderland can be found within areas such as the financial services and marketing, however the the public sector is accountable for the majority of employment in this field.

Redevelopment and regeneration projects have been earmarked at several locations in the area, all of which is expected to increase the demand for construction and infrastructure staff.
