Key issues

  • Filey residents account for almost 6% of the Borough’s working population.

  • In terms of business premises, the Town includes small business units in the Evron centre and Filey Industrial estate.

  • The biggest employment sector in Filey ward is retail (20% of employees), followed by manufacturing (15%), health and social work (14%) and hotels and catering (12%), which reflects the significance of tourism in the area.

  • On average skill levels of the population are lower in Filey than in the Borough as a whole and almost 40% of the population have no qualifications at all.

  • Filey has unemployment rates that are below the Borough average. At February 2010 5.3% of the working age population in Filey ward were claiming unemployment related benefits (7.5% of men and 2.9% of women), compared to 5.5% in the Borough as a whole.

  • Employment opportunities are considered limited, especially for young people and this creates difficulties for young people who may wish to remain in the area.
