Contract wins show Cheshire’s value for employee relocationMay 21st, 2012 | Posted by in Expatriate Relocation
Several major contract wins from multinational companies are likely to boost employee relocation into the Cheshire region, as well as creating new jobs for local residents.
The most recent high-profile announcement relates to the manufacture of the Vauxhall Astra, which has been confirmed as remaining at the Ellesmere Port plant for the years to come.
Around 700 jobs are associated with this announcement alone – and it’s one of several bringing jobs into the region.
In addition to a new Marks and Spencer superstore and a new location for outdoor clothing and leisure specialist Regatta, Jaguar Land Rover has outlined plans for a new logistics centre in the area.
The projects combine to add a further 800 roles to the local workforce, both for existing residents and to serve those undertaking employee relocation in Cheshire.
Mike Jones, Cheshire West and Chester Council leader, called the Ellesmere Port news “absolutely wonderful … and a great tribute to the workforce that has both led Europe with its efficiency levels, and also embraced new working practices to bring success”.
