5,500 green jobs planned in South Yorkshire

More than 5,500 jobs are set to be created in Doncaster over the next decade as the town tries to position itself as one of the UK’s biggest ‘green energy hubs’, it has been reported.

New investment projects by Doncaster Council are expected to increase the number of people employed in green jobs from 8,000 currently to more than 13,000.

The town currently accounts for more than a third of all primary green jobs in South Yorkshire.

A further 6,600 workers are employed in secondary green sectors such as agriculture and forestry, construction, heating and energy equipment manufacture.

Doncaster mayor Ros Jones welcomed the news of a jobs boost for the town and said the figures showed the importance of the green agenda to the town’s economy.
