New jobs website is launched

Ben Houchen launched a new jobs website this week after revealing a £1m gatehouse at the Teesworks site in Redcar.

The revamped entrance includes a new modern gatehouse, car parking areas, bespoke street lighting and modern landscaping to create a welcoming arrival for visitors and international investors.

A purpose-built 3.7-metre-high LED screen has been installed onto the newly decorated bridge as a feature to showcase the capabilities of the industrial zone.

The new 30-metre digital screen will display vacancies from the newly launched Tees Valley Jobs website.

The past couple of weeks have seen a number of major announcements, including Teesworks becoming home to the UK’s largest Freeport, GE Renewable Energy creating a facility on the Teesworks site and that the Treasury North will be set up in Darlington.

These have brought with them opportunities for jobs in both the short and long term and the new jobs website will be a one stop shop where local people can find out about the all the jobs on offer.

The website covers all industries, with roles relating to these new developments when they become available, and vacancies from across the whole of the region.

Constantly updated with new positions of all kinds, businesses can also create accounts to allow them to add their own vacancies.

Tees mayor Houchen said: “We’ve developed a new, single location where all of these roles can be advertised – from vital construction jobs needed to drive forward these opportunities to the high-quality, well-paid jobs that will come out of their completion, plus many more in the region besides.

“The website will also complement our Teesworks Skills Academy, which is working to give local people the skills that they need to secure the jobs on site that we’re creating.

“My plan for jobs has already created over 500 skilled, well paid jobs on the Teesworks site with many, many more to be added in the coming days and weeks. So if you’re searching for a new role or are a business who wants to advertise your opportunities, I’d urge you to take a look.”
