To know of the new developments and upcoming industrial plans in Lancashire, means to have an advantage over other job seekers, as you look for employment in the area.
Just as the industry of “fracking” for shale gas oil has greatly upped growth in certain areas within the United States, this industry also has plans for expansion and development in the Lancashire area. Mining company i-Gas is planning drilling of two wells between Manchester and Liverpool and to encourage area citizens to help build this industry in the area, the UK government is currently offering incentives to community members.
The benefits for citizens in Lancashire may include cheaper energy rates, funding for community centres and other offers to regional cities and groups that will appeal to newcomers and longtime residents. More important for job seekers, is the higher potential for new job openings, as well as retraining of older workers and those looking to change professions.
Cuadrilla Resources, a regional shale gas developer, resumed operations last December, and European Commission Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger has a positive approach to this industry expanding in the Lancashire area and surrounding region. Opportunities exist to add up to 1,700 jobs in Lancashire alone.
Similarly, an April 24 vote by the European Parliament’s MEPs extended the European Youth Guarantee Scheme in several areas looking to up employment for young people. This is good news for families seeking to relocate to the Lancashire area, and adds to the attraction of what is already a very appealing region. Also showing promise for the area as a magnet for new industrial growth are attempts to create The Liverpool BioInnovation Centre, which could attract up to 5,000 scientists, among other employees.
All of this growth and future oriented planning bodes well for those seeking jobs in the Lancashire area. These new industries and jobs will be added on top of the many service based positions that already need filling for small and medium-sized companies and groups, in both the public and private sectors. Positions in these sectors include sales and marketing, secretarial, clerical, administrative, customer service and many industrial and engineering positions.
To gain access to Lancashire’s expanding job opportunities, job seekers are wise to consult a professional recruitment firm like Daniel Adams. Most companies now use such a firm to get their staff rounded out, as their recruitment teams speak individually with each candidate, assesses their skills, and endeavours to match their talents with requirements. They’ve been doing this well for years, so Lancashire businesses often use them to meet their employment needs. It makes sense for job seekers to go to the same source that employers use. It saves both parties time and bother to use a professional recruitment firm.
