Jobs in South Humberside

A postal county that was established in 1974, and then abolished in 1996, South Humberside was located in northern England. It became two unitary authorities: North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

Some of the towns that were once part of South Humberside included Brigg, Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Scunthorpe. While the county may be gone in name, these locations are still excellent places for those seeking roles.

Fishing and shipping have long been important parts of the region's economy. During the 19th century, Grimsby's port imported a variety of products including iron, wheat, hemp, flax and timber.

When the railway arrived here in the late 1840s, it provided a direct link from South Humberside to London, making it easy to get fresh fish and other produce to the capital quickly.

Currently, the Port of Grimsby is the UK's largest in terms of tonnage - its success is due to a combination of factors, including its deep-water location, ease of access to the rest of the country and a relatively equal distance (about 200 miles) from London, Edinburgh and Rotterdam.

Food processing is the region's major industry today, while renewable energy, chemicals and tech are also important.

Just some of the companies that can be found in the region include Centrica, Siemens, Young's Seafood, Findus, Tata Steel, Corus and Ericsson.
