Employment not great in east yorks I'm afraid, but I don't know Grimsby well enough to give specifics.

Join an agency, look on indeed and job centre website you are next to the motorway and near Hull, Lincoln, Scunthorpe but obviously depends what industry you wish to work in. I have just been offered two jobs ne of which is in Grimsby.

Strongly suggest you do not live in Grimsby. It is a depressing impoverished place and job prospects are very low. Assuming your DP is working in Grimsby look to live near Humber Bridge and you widen your job circle to take in Scunthorpe, Hull, Lincoln. Schools in Grimsby itself not good.

Yes living outside Grimsby a better option like I do plenty of lovely places that you can move to that your DP would be blue to commute easily to Grimsby, I live in a lovely village in between Scunthorpe and Doncaster 3 miles from motorway and my commute will take 30 mins

I see your DD is 10. Do not automatically rule out living the other side of the Humber. I would suggest you take a look at N Ferriby, Welton, Brough. That would put you in the catchment for South Hunsley secondary which has a great reputation and your DP's commute would still only be 30 mins - there is no such thing as a Grimsby rush hour.

Hey what are you all slagging Grimsby for ? Do any of you live there ? Well I do and I'll admit that the town centre is not the nicest place in the world but there are far worse places to live in the UK than Grimsby you know. I live in a lovely quiet village on the outskirts of Grimsby and Cleethorpes has some nice areas too !

Seriously though I know you are all correct Grimsby is a shit hole and I would love to get out but I'm not brave enough, so I'll just pretend you are all wrong and try to be offended by your comments.
