400 jobs planned at former North-East steelworks

Amid the continuing jobs gloom, there is good news for the hard hit North-East, with plans to create almost 400 jobs at the former Redcar Steelworks.

The plans were outlined by Tees Valley major Ben Houchen, who said they would be created as part of a £400m investment to demolish the old steel works at the newly renamed Teeswork site. 

Mayor Houchen said: “More than 200 local jobs have already been created on the site, but this is just the beginning. Over the next year, we will go on to create hundreds more real jobs for real people in our communities.”

Meanwhile, mayors and council leaders from across South Yorkshire have called on the government to back plans, which will support thousands of jobs in the region following the Covid pandemic. The proposals contained in a Renewal Action Plan will support over 55,000 training and job opportunities, back 25,000 businesses, create 3,000 apprenticeships and revitalise South Yorkshire’s town centres.
