Living & Working In Lincolnshire

Living and working here is the best choice you will make

If you're looking for a home not just a house, a career not just a job and a great lifestyle not just somewhere to live, then living and working in North East Lincolnshire is the answer.

Where else can you enjoy affordable family homes in great locations, career opportunities with major companies, short commutes, coast and countryside on your doorstep and a friendly welcome from people who already enjoy all this and more? People who live and work here save a huge amount of time on their car journeys and, with housing and living costs considerably lower than other towns, funds stretch that bit further.

North East Lincolnshire already has a huge array of successful sectors, from food to ports to chemicals and, since opening its doors to the renewables industry, the area has welcomed an abundance of new jobs, careers and training programmes.

Grimsby is a thriving town full of history and heritage. Once one of the world's largest fishing ports, the town has developed into a bustling location brimming with opportunities.

Known as 'Europe's Food Town', Grimsby has a prospering food industry, providing thousands of jobs in over 500 food-related businesses, including global food brands such as Young's, which has its headquarters in Grimsby. The town is also diversifying into new industries, such as offshore wind and renewable energy, bringing with it a range of global companies and opportunities.

If you enjoy the great outdoors, then you'll love the choice of activities available in Cleethorpes, with its endless stretch of coastline. Go jet skiing or kite surfing or just walk along the sand dunes along the ever-changing Humber Estuary. This haven for nature lovers is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a coastal nature reserve.

The beautiful market town of Louth is just 12 miles from Grimsby. It nestles in the Lincolnshire Wolds and has wonderful Georgian streets with many fine Grade II listed buildings, restaurants and pubs. Close by is Market Rasen race course, the home of year-round National Hunt jump racing.

For fabulous days out, visit the city of Lincoln, just 36 miles from Grimsby, which is crowned by Lincoln Cathedral, one of Europe's finest examples of Gothic architecture. As with the Cathedral, the building of Lincoln Castle was commissioned by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, so there is a wealth of history and heritage to discover here too. Lincoln Castle is the home of one of only four remaining original copies of the 1215 Magna Carta.

Twenty six miles from Grimsby, you can cross the magnificent Humber Bridge, once the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world, providing fabulous views along the River Humber. From here, visit the historic city of Hull, one-time home to William Wilberforce, poet Philip Larkin and musical maestros, The Housemartins, and chosen as the UK's City of Culture 2017. Or take a drive to the medieval city of York (61 miles from Grimsby) with its world-renowned Minster, quaint cobbled shopping streets and spectacular race course. Humberside airport is an international airport and is just 10 miles north west of Grimsby.
