Following the announcement of a £2bn scheme to create jobs for young people, hundreds of jobs have become available at a factory in Scunthorpe.

Food manufacturer 2 Sisters has created 300 new jobs across its UK processing sites.

2 Sisters has said that it has an urgent need for extra workers, following the challenges faced by both the company and the local community during the coronavirus pandemic.

Jobs in engineering, technical, supply chain and operations are on offer, with roles including team leader, quality assurance, general operative, and quality manager.

President of owner Boparan Holdings Ranjit Singh Boparan said:

“The Chancellor is right when he says the UK cannot afford a lost generation because of the coronavirus crisis.

“The fall-out of this crisis will hit vulnerable young workers harder than other age groups, so my business is well-positioned to help at our sites which have vacancies.”

This follows the launch of a £2 billion Kickstart scheme, announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak earlier this month.

The roles will be aimed at people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are currently claiming Universal Credit and are deemed to be at risk of long-term unemployment.

Scunthorpe MP Holly Mumby-Croft added:

“I’m very pleased to see the Chancellor’s job-creating plans taking effect so quickly in Scunthorpe.

“2 Sisters’ decision to open up a range of placements, including those in high-skilled and leadership positions, will provide great opportunities for young people in our area.”
