Middlesbrough has had to reinvent itself following the demise of its historic heavy industries such as iron, steel, shipbuilding and chemical works. There are still many jobs to be found in these industries in Teesside (such as the Wilton and Billingham chemical plants) but the majority of Middlesbrough’s employment is within the service sector. This includes distribution, hotels, transport, finance, IT, education and health.
One of the other major employers is Middlesbrough Council, reflecting the reliance on public sector jobs in the area. The council employs more than 7,000 people in education, social care, health, education, tourism, cleaning and administration. The council also helps support the town's cultural life which includes the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art which opened to great acclaim in 2007 at a cost of £14m. The gallery is a proud statement by the town of the value of arts and the town's determination to be at the cutting edge.
