Over 4,000 jobs will be created by the Project, including 1,700 roles at the peak of its construction, 1,500 jobs in the supply chain and 1,000 long-term, high-skilled jobs when the company begins operating.
The Company aims 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.
We have a longstanding commitment to local employment and we work closely with our construction contractors to encourage them to provide opportunities for local people wherever possible. The Company expects that 80% workforce will be sourced from the local area when the Project is operational.
In addition, we will train at last 300 local people in preparation for mining operations while supporting 15 young people through our undergraduate programme. We have also provided funding of £85,000 to the borough councils of Scarborough and Redcar and Cleveland to prepare local people for employment.
