It has been revealed that the 2012 Coastal Communities Fund is to create a variety of jobs in seaside economies for people to take advantage of. Recruitment agencies may well see increased demand for skilled workers in the six major projects that have received government investment, enabling employment to grow and seaside towns to thrive.
Announced earlier this year, the Coastal Communities Fund offered £24 million to projects wanting to diversify their economy as well as create better sea defences. It has now been revealed that six projects have been awarded money, including Suffolk County Council, Bournemouth Borough Council and Barrow-in-Furness. Meanwhile, East Anglia’s RAK Maritime Project, Padstow’s Lobster Hatchery and the South East Food Group Partnership have all been given the green light thanks to the investment, enabling the local economies to benefit from new employment opportunities.
Talking of the latest investment plans and how local economies would be able to benefit, Danny Alexander, chief secretary to the Treasury, said that the money would “enable councils, businesses, charities and social enterprises to create and protect jobs and training opportunities for thousands of people across the UK.” It was also revealed that the fund would expand in 2013 to £28 million, offering many more projects vital funding.
For recruitment agencies, the news will mean that employment opportunities in areas that have been awarded money are likely to climb, offering increased possibilities of placing staff and connecting companies with a workforce.
