More information about Jarrow

Jarrow is located in the culturally distinct northeast of England at the mouth of the River Tyne. Sitting just over two miles downstream from the industrial city of Newcastle upon Tyne and spanning 717 hectares, Jarrow is perhaps best known for its significance in British history as the source of the Jarrow March. This famous protest against government social policies began when a troupe of over 200 unemployed Jarrow men marched 300 miles from their town to London in 1936 to lobby for their cause.[1]

Today, Jarrow is a vibrant town with a population of 29,128[2] which continues to play a major role in the northeast's socio-economic fabric as an important hub for the car, finance and motorsport industries. Locals are optimistic about the future and the opportunities provided by being part of the Newcastle City Region Combined Authority.

Nestle in the heart of the Industrial Plains region, the town provides the perfect access to a skilled, experienced workforce. The region is well known for its engineering capabilities due to its traditional connections with shipbuilding and heavy industry.

OEM Jarrow, part of the Jaguar Land Rover group, has been producing parts for car production in Jarrow since 1969, and it is estimated that around 5,000 people are employed in this sector.[3] Many local businesses and services such as car body work and repairs, general maintenance and car dealerships are benefiting from this sector, while local car enthusiasts are able to enjoy the spectacular track that has been set up at the Jarrow Race Circuit.[4] The circuit hosted an annual round of the BTCC touring car championship for three years from 2009 until 2011.

The finance industry in Jarrow has seen tremendous growth in the past few years.
