Located in the north-east of England, County Durham is bordered by Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, North Yorkshire. Settlements in the county include Darlington, Hartlepool, Shildon and Stockton-on-Tees and it offers a variety of options for those seeking positions.
In the early 19th century, most of County Durham comprised rural areas and market towns. With the down of the Industrial Revolution, mining and shipbuilding grew in importance for the area, while heavy engineering also grew rapidly - particularly the building of bridges and locomotives.
In fact, the Cleveland Bridge & Engineering company is still based in Darlington today and it has been responsible for construction projects like the Humber Bridge, the Forth Road Bridge and the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
Over the last few years, many of the local towns have gone through significant regeneration. There are now a number of large retail centres and business parks in the region.
Companies with manufacturing facilities in County Durham include KP Snacks, CAV Aerospace, GlaxoSmithKline, Reckitt Benckiser, Cummins and Walkers Crisps.
Several businesses have large depots in the region, including Argos and Aldi and other companies with operations based in the area include Orange, AMEC, the Student Loans Company and Thomas Swan.
