What’s new in Newcastle for 2019? A word of advice from BMC Recruitment Group…
CHRIS MILNES - MD BMC RECRUITMENT GROUP
“2019 is looking like a fantastic time to get that promotion or expand your team. Last year, Newcastle was ranked the top UK city to work and we’re not surprised! At BMC Recruitment, we’ve seen amazing growth in the region in 2018 and this shows no signs of stopping. We work with eight out of 10 of the top 200 employers in the city and we’ve seen an incredible investment into the work force in the region.
“Newcastle is in an extremely strong position for the year ahead. Brexit has meant that Newcastle, with its port and airport, has become more attractive due to its proximity with Amsterdam. More companies are relocating north, which means we’re in a great position for growth in regards to the job market.
“We’ve seen a boost in employment and growth, working with tech giants, to financial organisations who are rapidly expanding their team. We've also been appointing people from further afield in incredibly prestigious and executive roles, bringing more talent to the area.
“Newcastle is becoming a much more attractive place to relocate with its cheaper housing, lower living costs, a greater choice of jobs and strong professional community.”
