England’s largest county, North Yorkshire sprawls across a huge area, much of it made up of National Parks. Tourism is a mainstay of the economy for this rural county, with thousands attracted to the Yorkshire Dales or North Yorks Moors.
The seaside towns o Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey also have thriving tourist industries.
The major city of York has a university with the potential for many jobs in education, and the county also has several power generators offering opportunities for scientists, engineers and support staff to work. Agriculture is also an important job provider, and new technology businesses have also developed.
