Jobs Fair Held By Whitby Potash Mine

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 10:30am 23rd May 2018.

The company behind the Woodsmith mine near Whitby is holding a local jobs fair.

Sirius Minerals has joined forces with the borough council and Scarborough Construction Skills Village to offer regular job information 

The events are open to anyone who is interested in gaining employment in the construction phase of Sirius Minerals’ polyhalite project, and are a chance to find out more about the types of roles that will be on offer. 

Representatives from Sirius and its contractors will be on hand to provide information about the jobs that will be coming up and how to apply for them.

They will be joined by staff from the Scarborough Construction Skills Village who can offer bespoke training or skills support and advice.

The first North Yorkshire information session will take place on Wednesday 6 June from 4.00pm – 7.00pm at Whitby Pavilion Complex. 

Councillor Derek Bastiman from Scarborough Borough Council, said:

“Sirius is already employing local people, engaging businesses from the area and making a difference to the local economy.

We are delighted to be working together with them to promote the thousands of good quality jobs that will be available to the residents of the Borough.” 

Sirius Minerals’ £3bn polyhalite project involves the construction of an underground mine near Whitby with a 23 mile mineral transport tunnel to a processing plant and port at Teesside.

It is set to create approximately 2,000 jobs during its construction, as well as training to support 300 local people into roles in preparation for mining operations.

Matt Parsons, General Manager External Affairs, for Sirius Minerals, said:

“The company’s workforce will grow significantly in the coming months and years and it’s our priority to generate an awareness of the careers that will be on offer to people that live in the area.

Over 2,000 jobs will be created with our contractors during the construction phase of our project and we are working with them to ensure that, where possible, we provide opportunities for people local to North Yorkshire and Teesside.

We would also like to reassure people who cannot make either of the events that they will be held regularly and we will make sure that all the information about upcoming job opportunities is made available on our website.”
