Jobs in Suffolk, Virginia, United States

Suffolk is the largest city in Virginia and the 14th largest city in the United States. The area of Suffolk is fertile with lakes, streams, woodlands, and rocky terrain. The city came into existence in 1742 by English settlers who desired a port town beside the Nansemond River. It was originally called “Constant’s Warehouse” until it was changed to William Gooch’s (Royal Governor) home of Suffolk in England.

Suffolk was officially recognized as a town in 1808 and incorporated as a city in 1910, which caused it to separate itself from Nansemond County. Peanut production was the major source of livelihood for early settlers. It continues to remain a major transportation and processing hub for peanuts in the current era.

The Suffolk Public school operates over 10 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 3 high schools within the school system. There is a diverse range of retail, manufacturing, hospitality, and industrial businesses conducted in the city.
