Major new campaign launched to highlight benefits of living and working in North East Lincolnshire.

“If you choose to come to our area, you are in for something great to happen in your life.”

These are the words of Cleethorpes Hair Salon owner Sharon Bett.

Sharon moved from London to North East Lincolnshire – and has not looked back, having launched a successful business and settled here.  She is now one of a whole host of business leaders and owners who are supporting an energetic new North East Lincolnshire Council campaign to encourage fellow professionals to ‘find their space’ in our area.

Today marks the launch of the major new drive to show people from around the UK the many benefits of living and working in our borough.

www.nelincs.gov.uk/findyourspace is a dedicated new webpage to showcase the wealth of opportunities here in North East Lincolnshire.

Its recruitment section is already supported by local businesses and organisations – all of them wanting to attract people to work for them. Those already on board include a leading regional law firm, career providers, a major energy company, colleges, a well-known electrical firm, an accountancy company and a popular restaurant and hotel.

Lincolnshire’s largest law firm, Wilkin Chapman Solicitors, is on board. Ella Fearnley said:

“We offer an outstanding range of career opportunities in North East Lincolnshire and the wider region, from apprenticeships and traineeships to senior associate and partner positions. Our firm provides comprehensive career pathways, a generous benefits package, and a vibrant, sociable work environment. We’re thrilled to support this campaign, highlighting the region and its fantastic career prospects.”

Heather Dutton from Stallingborough Grange added:

“The site looks fabulous.  There’s so much to shout about with this whole area I’m always drumming on to people from away the many positives we have here.”

Inspired by our seaside location, the colourful webpage catches the eye with a new ‘Love’ branding for North East Lincolnshire and with digital ‘postcards’ that celebrate our place – the physical cards are also available for our partners to share.

www.nelincs.gov.uk/findyourspace goes on to shout the borough’s benefits from the rooftops, such as:

  • House prices: the average price of a good family home here is £151,000. In wider England, it’s £286,000, so your earnings go much further here;
  • To rent: the average house rental cost is £565 here, in wider England it’s a whopping £925;
  • Our location is great – our towns are sandwiched between a natural coastline that is a haven for birds and wildlife, and the wonderful Lincolnshire Wolds – who said this county was flat!
  • Getting around – more than 40% of people here travel less than 5km to work , compared to 23% in wider England, (ONS 2021). Over 90% of residents travel 15 minutes or less to school, (DfT, 2019);
  • Schools: 87 per cent of schools are graded Outstanding or Good by Ofsted.

North East Lincolnshire Council leader, Cllr Philip Jackson, said:

“To grow, North East Lincolnshire needs to support its own, but also bring others here who have the expertise and skills that are needed.  Indeed, we need to spread the message – that we live in a great place with the coast, the Wolds countryside, and the business opportunities all here.”
