REBUILDING plans on some of Doncaster’s major construction projects has provided a jobs boost.

Three new graduate trainee positions are being created in the borough to work on the current Waterdale scheme and the re-building of Campsmount School.

The jobs are with Wates Construction and specifically related to projects in Doncaster.

Candidates have been applying for the positions via Aspiration Doncaster, part of the Success Doncaster programme, and the Wates website since Christmas.

David Price, Business Unit Manager for Wates Construction, said: “It is extremely important to us that we utilize our presence in Doncaster to positively impact local people and the local economy.

“The creation of these new positions is the next step in our efforts to do this and we’re looking forward to meeting the shortlisted candidates to find out how they can help us deliver these two important projects.”

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “It was always the intention that Doncaster’s Civic and Cultural Quarter project and school rebuilding programme should bring job and business opportunities to the town.

“These jobs are hopefully the first of many that local people have the chance to go for.”

Last month 200 firms attended an event detailing how they could bid for work which would be created by the schemes.
