Published: Tuesday, 24 May 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

Up to 200 new jobs are set to be created by two of the United Kingom's largest banks, as they launch a renewable energy taskforce.

The jobs, which may include graduate roles, are to be created by NatWest and the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) as they invest £50 million in setting up an energy team.

This team is set to help farms and other businesses run on wind turbines and solar panels.

Ian Burrow, head of agriculture and renewable energy at RBS, said that the service offered in regards to energy is unlike any other.

"We're serious about being at the forefront of helping UK businesses switch to a more sustainable way of meeting their energy needs," he said.

"No other bank can offer this depth of knowledge and level of service to [small and medium-sized enterprises]."

The renewable energy sector is widely predicted to be the catalyst for many jobs in green industries over the upcoming years.
