Popular industry sectors in Newcastle Upon Tyne


More information

With a population of around 280,200 in the 2011 Census, Newcastle upon Tyne is the largest city in north-east England. Historically drawing success from its location on the River Tyne close to the North Sea, Newcastle (as it is colloquially known) was once home to large Manufacturing and Coal industries, which provided jobs for much of its population. Nowadays, along with much of the rest of the UK, the city has made the transition to a more service-based economy.

Recruitment in Newcastle

As a large city, Newcastle is home to a multitude of recruitment agencies, who help employers source staff for roles at every level - whether temporary, permanent, contract or interim. Many agencies in Newcastle are located in the city centre, to the west of the A167(M). If you represent a company which is looking to hire new staff, or are a candidate seeking employment, then this page is the easiest way to find an agency that will suit your particular needs. Simply use the search box below to generate a list of agencies which recruit within your particular industry.

Industry and employment in the local area

2011 Census data shows that largely Public Sector-based roles such as Health and Social Work (15.7% of local workers) and Education (10.6%) are popular modes of employment in Newcastle. Manufacturing (6.1%) is reasonably strong across most sub-sectors, whilst the Retail Sector and its associated activities (14.9%) are also a popular form of employment in the city.

Transport and commuting

Situated in the far north-east of England close to the Scottish border, Newcastle is somewhat distant from much of the country - and whilst this makes intercity commuting difficult, it is something that almost certainly contributes to the city's unique culture. Leeds lies around two hours drive to the south via the A1(M), or around one and a half hours via a direct train - whilst Carlisle is around one and a half hours drive on the A69. Edinburgh is also reachable in under two hours via train.

Newcastle itself boasts one of the most advanced public transport systems in the UK outside of London, in the form of the Metro. This extensive light rail network boasts 60 stations - a number of which are underground.
