Looking for Jobs in the North East? A list of Hundreds of Employers Recruiting in the Area

A list of almost 1,000 companies with vacancies in the Yorkshire, Tyneside, Teesside / Tees Valley, Northumberland and Leeds areas.

The list is split into two tables: the first contains charities, education and public sector organisations. The second table lists private sector companies.

Where given, company sizes are measured by the number of people they employ. This figure usually includes all employees of the company, or parent company - not just those employed in the North East.

A few companies are listed but carry no links - these are organisations that I estimate should have a significant recruitment effort (based on turnover and number of employees), but I can find no website or recruitment link on their website.

Other useful local company lists include Newcastle City Council's Business Directory, The NEPIC Directory, Yell, Free Index and Endole.

The linked websites are checked regularly for phishing, viruses and malware and any infected links are removed when found. Companies who only offer low-quality jobs such as unpaid internships, commission-only sales or work-at-home piecework will not be included. Minimum company size is generally 50+ employees and £1M+ turnover, however exceptions are made where future expansion seems likely or where the company works in an area where jobs are scarce in the North East.

The list is not exhaustive. Suggestions for new additions or corrections are welcome.

Unfortunately, many of the websites linked to below require Javascript enabled to function correctly.

This is because universities and the resulting contemporary online tech environment tend to focus on Javascript as a programming language, which results in web designers that happily accept all manner of ludicrous security and performance trade-offs - anything to avoid learning a server-side language and some of the quirks of HTML/CSS so that they could take the much more efficient route of simply pre-rendering web content to static HTML. Though to be fair, HTML/CSS bears all the hallmarks of a technology that was either designed to lock people into a particular technology (as someone who used to evaluate software for local government, it's easily recognisable), or else is designed as a (fatally-flawed: artificial complexity contains the seeds of its own destruction) job creation scheme.

With that little bit of politics out of the way, here's the (pre-rendered to static HTML) list:
