Life in North Lincolnshire

North Lincolnshire is a place that offers a high quality of life, a low cost of living and great days out. It's the perfect place for a career in teaching.

A great place to be

Stroll along quiet river banks, through ancient woodland or formal gardens. Or enjoy breath-taking views whilst walking or cycling on the Lincolnshire Wolds. Why not try a round of golf or really set your pulse racing and have a go at skydiving? You could learn to shoot or take on your friends at paintball. Our award winning leisure, entertainment and cultural centres complete the picture.

Great choices, great prices

Where else can you have such a choice of places to base you or your family—take your pick; an urban centre, a market town or a quiet village?

And the choice of home is extensive; new-build, a cosy listed cottage, or a larger or grander property.

Whatever your choice it’s available here – and at a great price.

North Lincolnshire has become a more desirable place to live. Why?

Because we have:

  • a beautiful environment, with lower than average house prices
  • a buoyant economy – and it’s on the rise
  • Lincolnshire Lakes development to provide 6000 new homes
  • quality services

A great place to teach

There are plenty of opportunities to progress your teaching career across a wide range of urban and rural schools. Our schools work closely together; sharing best practice to help them achieve high quality professional development. Most of our children attend a good or outstanding school.

At North Lincolnshire Council we constantly rise to the challenges we face. We strive to improve the quality of life for our residents and our communities. Our priorities will guide us to help us achieve our vision.

Together, we can inspire our young people and adults to embrace a culture of learning; to be competitive with the rest of the world.

Life here

When it’s time to relax—there is something for everyone. North Lincolnshire has a wonderful mix of old and new. Discover our historic market towns with a great choice of independent shopping and traditional street markets or visit one of our many museums and heritage centres.

Its location is the midpoint between London and Edinburgh on the south bank of the Humber estuary. The area covers 85,000 hectares and is mostly rural. It includes a variety of natural landscapes and sites of significant scientific, historic and wildlife interest.

Although North Lincolnshire covers a large area; the population is small. Almost half of the 167,400 residents live in the major urban area of Scunthorpe and Bottesford. Travelling to work, in North Lincolnshire, couldn’t be easier.

We have excellent road and bus links to other centres such as Doncaster, Leeds, Sheffield, York, Lincoln, Hull and Grimsby (50 minute drive time to M62 and an hourly bus service to and from Hull).

The Trans-Pennine line provides direct rail links to the East Coast Main Line at Doncaster. You can get to London in 2 and a half hours. Humberside International Airport is only one stop away from the rest of the world.

Whatever your work-life style, living and working here can improve and support it.

What else can we say…?

  • our people are living longer
  • our strong and caring communities offer a safe place to live
  • our crime rates are some of the lowest in the UK
North Lincolnshire is a great place to live and work. So for quality of life and a great career...TeachNorthLincs
