We have been working in partnership with Nifco UK to develop our Great Reasons to Build Your Career in North East England campaign.


Great Reasons to Build Your Career in North East England

We want to help schools and colleges to raise awareness among young people of the career opportunities available in the North East and how to access them, as well as support Chamber members seeking to recruit young people into their businesses.

Last year, we carried out a survey of almost 400 young people, including Year 10 pupils at three Chamber member schools and students at Gateshead College.

The survey found that most respondents had some idea of the career they wanted by the time they left school, but there was a lack of understanding about the labour market in the North East.

Using the feedback we received from the survey, we have developed some career guidance materials highlighting growing sectors in the North East economy, including information about the different routes into these sectors, salary information, highlighting some of the employers in the North East working in these sectors, and how work in these sectors is changing:

Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering

Chemical & Process Industries

Creative and Digital

Life Sciences and Healthcare

Subsea, Marine & Offshore
