Jobs in Nottingham

Nottingham is a city and unitary authority area in Nottinghamshire in the East of England.

The city has links to the legend of Robin Hood and to the lace-making, bicycles, and tobacco industries. Nottingham is a tourist destination, with visitors spending over £1.5 billion per year - the thirteenth-highest amount in England's 111 statistical territories.

The city predates Anglo-Saxon times and was known in Brythonic as Tigguo Cobauc, meaning ‘Place of Caves’. Nottingham Castle was constructed in 1068 on a sandstone outcrop by the River Leen. The Anglo-Saxon settlement was originally confined to the area today known as the Lace Market and was surrounded by a substantial defensive ditch and rampart, which fell out of use following the Norman Conquest and was filled by the time of the Domesday Survey.

On the return of Richard the Lionheart from the Crusades, the castle was occupied by supporters of Prince John, including the Sheriff of Nottingham. It was besieged by Richard and was eventually captured. In the legends of Robin Hood, Nottingham Castle is the scene of the final showdown between the Sheriff and the hero outlaw. By the 15th century Nottingham had established itself as a centre of a thriving export trade in religious sculpture made from Nottingham Alabaster.

During the Industrial Revolution, much of Nottingham's prosperity was founded on the textile industry; in particular, the city became an internationally important centre of lace manufacture. During the second half of the 20th century, Nottingham saw urban growth with the development of new public and private housing estates and new urban centres, which have engulfed former rural villages such as Bilborough, Wollaton, Gedling and Bramcote. South of the river there has also been an expansion with new areas such as Edwalton and West Bridgford, adding to Nottingham's urban sprawl.

Nottingham is also a major sporting centre, and in October 2015 was named 'Home of English Sport'. The National Ice Centre, Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre, and Trent Bridge international cricket ground are all based in or around the city, which is also the home of two professional league football teams; the world's oldest professional league club Notts County, and Nottingham Forest. The city also has professional rugby, ice hockey and cricket teams, and the Aegon Nottingham Open, an international tennis tournament on the ATP and WTA tours.

Nottingham was named a ‘City of Literature’ by UNESCO in 2015, joining Norwich, Melbourne, Prague and Barcelona as one of only a handful in the world.  The title reflects Nottingham's literary heritage, with Lord Byron, D. H. Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe having links to the city, as well as a strong contemporary literary community, a thriving publishing industry and a vibrant poetry scene. It has two universities, the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, which are attended by over 60,000 students.

Nottingham has two large-capacity theatres, the Nottingham Playhouse and the Theatre Royal, which together with the neighbouring Royal Concert Hall forms the Royal Centre. The city also contains smaller theatre venues such as the Nottingham Arts Theatre, the Lace Market Theatre and New Theatre.

The city has also produced a number of celebrities, including Dudley D Watkins, Edwin Starr, Bruce Dickinson, Jake Bugg, and many more.
