More great jobs news

When I visited the Sirius Minerals Woodsmith Mine last summer, I said it was going to help transform our local economy. Today we saw the latest evidence of this, with a further 150 jobs taking the number of people employed on the project to over 1,000.

There are two jobs fairs for people interested in these opportunities, in Whitby on 9 July and Grangetown on 10 July - please share this post with people who may be interested! You can register to attend by emailing

There's also really good jobs news in the energy sector today, with the announcement that EEW OSB at Haverton Hill have secured a major offshore wind turbine contract. You can read about this news here.
