Recent university leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that hundreds of jobs are expected to be created if plans for a multi-million pound power station in east Hull gets the go-ahead.
Dong Energy, Denmark's biggest power company, has announced its intentions to build a wood-burning plant near Queen Elizabeth Dock capable of generating enough power to meet the energy needs of 500,000 homes, the Hull Daily Mail reports.
Known as Humber Renewables, the scheme could be up and running by 2016, and could result in the creation of hundreds of jobs over a four-year period.
Ian Crummack, spokesman for the firm, told the paper: "The number of people constructing this plant would be big. There would be hundreds of people involved although it is a little early to say exact figures. It's going to be a major project."
Earlier this week, graduates were given a boost by the government's announcement that joblessness has fallen by 3,000 to come down to 2.46 million.
