Jobs in Northbrook, Illinois, United States

Northbrook is a town located in Cook County in the state of Illinois. It is a suburb of Chicago, located around 25 miles to the north.

Affluent Suburb

Northbrook is a very affluent suburb of Chicago. It is noted as having a particularly safe environment and an abundance of resources and recreational facilities specifically designed for families.

It has a large variety of shops, restaurants and bars mostly grouped around a pleasant downtown commercial district.

The city boasts 17 schools, and 10 parks or outdoor recreational facilities (like plating fields) including a nature reserve and an expansive park district. There is also a movie theatre and old style family video game arcade (which is a lot of fun!)

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 48.9
  • Median Household Income: $118,480
  • Median Property Value: $521,800
  • Cost of Living: 60% higher than state average, 57% higher than national average
  • Unemployment Rate: 3.2%

White Collar Dominance

The largest employing sector is Professional, Scientific and Tech Services (including IT support) that accounts for 16% of the workforce, closely followed by Finance and Insurance on 12%.

This is not particularly surprising, when you consider that the largest single employer in the city is Allstate. This company is the second largest provider of line insurance products in the US, and they are headquartered in Northbrook. Their workforce stands at around 8,750 strong. This means they are obviously an extremely important section of the local jobs market, and also represent a healthy chunk of those Professional, Finance and Insurance jobs we mentioned above.

Whilst not technically in the city, both Walgreens and Baxter International (both pharmaceutical companies) are headquartered in the nearby town of Deerfield, and both have workforces of over 2,000 each. Many employees will live in Northbrook.

Finally, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is a safety consulting firm with some 2,000 employees and a headquarters in Northbrook.

Healthcare (14%), education (10%) and Retail (10%) are all strong sectors too, but in this town, Corporate, White Collar roles dominate the workforce.
