The first details have been released about some of the roles which will be filled by 1,000 people at the Siemens development in Hull

A new careers website outlines specifics about some of the roles which will be advertised later this year when more than 250 positions become available.

The jobs are split into four categories; Factories, Warehouse, Managerial and Engineering.

Siemens say the early notification of the roles will allow potential applicants the time to get extra training and support for when jobs become available.

The technology firm will hold careers events in the autumn where people can get more information, and will also run events for primary and secondary school pupils.

We will work closely with Siemens who are restating their commitment to local employment in their new Hull factory and marine operation and together we will ensure that local people are equipped with the necessary skills through the right funding and training programmes in order for them to take advantage of the 1,000 jobs.

Councillor Stephen Brady, Leader of Hull City Council

We have always said we want to recruit local people and this new facility opens the door to a lot of people who live and work locally who we know have similar and transferrable skill sets. In addition, we will work with the Green Port Growth Pathway Programme, which is supported by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, to highlight training opportunities, through third-party providers, to equip local long-term unemployed people with the skills that potentially could enable them to work with Siemens.
