Future jobs in Tees Valley

31st October 2019 by Richard Allnutt

The Tees Valley Strategic Economic Plan identifies 7 ‘priority sectors’ which, it is hoped, will provide loads of future jobs for our young people. They are;

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Process, chemicals and energy
  • Logistics
  • Health and biologics
  • Digital and creative
  • Culture and leisure
  • Business and professional services

We all have a massive role to play in making sure we have a talent pipeline of young people with the skills to thrive in these areas. Of course, there are many other sectors which provide great opportunities for us. Some sectors are much smaller and might be in decline, but still need new people to replace existing staff.

The following link is a brilliant piece of Labour Market Intelligence. It informs us about the 7 sectors and highlights key work by innovative companies across the region;

The Tees Valley Strategic Economic Plan (the 7 priority sectors can be explored from page 10 to 13- the Sectoral Profiles).

Also, the excellent www.teesvalleycareers.com website is the public face of the Tees Valley’s careers strategy and it is the go-to resource for Tees Valley LMI. Here you can find lots of factsheets about opportunities within specific areas of Tees Valley (e.g. Darlington and Middlesbrough) and opportunities within each sector.
