With 2.5million people living within an hour’s drive, the Tees Valley is governed by one of only nine Metro Mayors in the UK, and is also home to the Government’s new Darlington Economic Campus.
Its five boroughs are made up of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees, with a population of 700,000. Located midway between Darlington and Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside International Airport is surrounded by the beautiful Tees Valley countryside and enjoys the best the area has to offer for employers and employees.
The region has one of the UK’s most integrated industrial economies, with a supply chain made up of a wide range of firms. This legacy has nurtured the advanced manufacturing sector and attracted some of the most strategically important multinational companies to the area; in fact, around 70% of regional businesses are internationally owned.
