Jobs in Stoke-on-Trent

Often simply referred to as Stoke, Stoke-on-Trent is a city in Staffordshire. It is also affectionately known as The Potteries, a name that date backs to the 1800s when the region became a leader in the production of ceramics, particularly decorative tiles, figurines and dishes.

The area around Stoke had long been recognised as an excellent source of clay, salt, lead and coal and many of the companies that started manufacturing ceramic goods on an industrial scale during the 17th century are still around today - such as Royal Doulton, Spode, Wedgwood and Dudson, which was founded in 1800 and is the oldest tableware manufacturer in the UK.

In addition, the 1842 Pottery Riots that which were sparked by unannounced pay reductions have been said to be some of the first examples of trade unionism in the country.

Of course, other industries have also helped shape the region. Coal mining was a large part of the local economy until the last pit closed in the mid 1990s. Meanwhile, the steel industry was a booming business throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.

These days, Stoke-on-Trent is a thriving community and a great location for anyone seeking vacancies.

As well as the ceramics companies that call the city home, a number of other businesses have offices in the region, including bet365, Phones4U and the Michelin tyre company. Other companies, like Sainsbury's and the Co-operative Pharmacy, maintain large warehousing facilities in Stoke, while Premier Foods manufactures some well-known sweet treats.
