Introducing This North Works


Hello, and welcome to This North Works! Come on in and make yourself at home.

We thought it was only right that we started off with a bit of an introduction. You might be wondering what on earth This North Works is all about it, so let us tell you. 

The premise is simple - at This North Works we wholeheartedly believe that you can build an exciting, fulfilling and successful career up north, and we want to show you how. We noticed that so much of the careers chat is focussed on London and the south, and so we founded This North Works in an attempt to redress the balance.

Our aim is to provide you with inspiring and useful resources to help you grow your career up north, and we'll also be using the platform to champion and showcase the incredible talent that already exists here (and trust us, there's a lot).

We’ll show you people who are kicking ass in the region, as well as getting their tips and advice on how you can achieve the same. We’ll connect you to mentors and like-minded peers through events and networking platforms, and we’ll be here to answer any questions you might have about working up north.

And because we know that one of the main perks of building a career in the north is getting to enjoy the benefits of living here, we’ll also be sharing our favourite haunts in each northern city, and any events and cool things happening in the area.


There are a couple of key areas to the website - first up is the blog. We'll be updating this section regularly with career news, northern city guides and plenty of resources to help you build your career. If there's anything in particular you'd love to see, please do drop us an email and let us know.

Then there's the podcast, which will be all about celebrating and championing interesting and successful careers in the north. Each week we'll be chatting to a different guest about their career journeys so far and delving into the pros and cons of living and working up north. You can expect a new episode every Monday. 

Finally, you'll see that we have an events section. Here, we'll be sharing cool events that are happening up north, particularly those with an emphasis on careers. Plus, we're hoping that we'll have some events of our own coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled for those. 

Phew, that's quite a lot isn't it? Hopefully you're excited about it all as we are. 

We want this platform to be useful and inspiring, so if you have any thoughts, questions or feedback, please get in touch at
