Residents and businesses in Hull and East Yorkshire can access information regarding the region’s emerging renewable energy sector at the Green Port Hub.
Situated in Hull’s Central Library, the walk-in information facility gives the latest updates regarding the Green Port Hull and Siemens developments, as well as an overview of the renewables projects in the region – the UK’s energy capital.
The Hub is home to an exhibition showing the progress of the Siemens development, enabling visitors to find out more about working in the offshore wind industry. Siemens own recruitment staff are in regular attendence to advise job seekers about the roles on offer and the type of skills and experience they are looking for. Please call for an appointment if you would like to talk to them.
Run by the Green Port Growth Programme Employment and Skills Team, in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, The Hub is equipped with IT pods so jobseekers can search for employment opportunities and apply for jobs online. Staff from Jobcentre Plus and our skills team can provide assistance with CV writing and online applications.
There is also information to help support investors and their supply chains to secure long-term economic growth for the area. The Green Port Growth Programme Employment and Skills Team is working with local businesses and training providers to make sure there is a capable workforce in place. The facility will also provide a resource for inward investors to utilise when they are visiting the area, with space dedicated to meetings and interviews, for example.
The team also delivers the Pathway to Employment project from The Hub. The 10 week training and work experience programme will give long term unemployed people the skills they need to access jobs in manufacturing – ultimately in the renewables sector. The first step towards getting involved in the project is to attend an assessment day at The Hub.
