    Default Moving to North permanently....Any IT Job out there..??

    After spending many years around M4 Corridor, I am seriously looking to move North after selling my small 2BHK in south east.

    Only worry I have is on Job prospects in North..? Recently when I was working in Newcastle most of my colleagues were from either Scotland or from South East. HR guy told me he is not getting any qualified local IT contractors in North..!!– Which looks promising for me to move there..!!

    Same time I have been told only places to get decent IT job in North is Leeds, Newcastle & Stockport..??

    Which one to believe..??

    You after permie work or contracts?

    Here in Yorkshire contracts are limited, you might be better NW around Manchester etc or further north towards Newcastle but all in all I think the south is still the place to be
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Absolutely no jobs in the North.

    Every IT contractor from north of Watford Gap has been on the bench for five years or more.

    We're all just sitting here waiting for a left wing government to get in and re-open the pits.

    HTH.

    I sell tea. Cold tea. No milk, no sugar, no tea... and so on. It was inevitable, so I thought I'd get there first.
