Contemporary Country Durham

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.

Recruitment and employment in County Durham
