We aim to train 50 apprentices in the first five years following the commencement of construction and will maintain an ongoing apprenticeship programme. Click here to find out more.
In addition, we will train at last 300 local people in preparation for mining operations while supporting 15 young people through our undergraduate programme.
The number of jobs with Sirius increased by over one-hundred percent over the last year, with the Sirius team now standing at 125. this will ramp up to more than 1,000 by the time the Project is fully operational.
We have a longstanding commitment to local employment and already over 70% of the Sirius team come from the local area. We have a clear approach in place to help us increase this even further to meet our longer-term target of 80%.
This includes a commitment to take on 50 apprentices over the next four years, train at least 300 adults in preparation for mining operations, and supporting a minimum of 15 young people through our undergraduate programme.
As part of our planning commitments, we provided funding of £85,000 to the borough councils of Scarborough and Redcar and Cleveland to prepare local people for employment. This partfunded the new East Cleveland Employment and Training Hub.
Over 2,000 jobs will be created with our contractors during construction and we are working with them to provide opportunities for local people.
