Jobs boost for East Midlands

The
East Midlands economy is set to receive a boost with the creation of 1,250
jobs.

Exel,
the international logistics group, has announced plans to recruit staff this
summer to manage big new contracts.

Exel
chief executive John Allan said that an extra 1,000 workers would be hired to
manage a new contract with DIY retailer B&Q in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

The
JD Wetherspoon pub chain has also struck a deal with Exel which will create 250
jobs in Daventry, Northamptonshire.

Both
towns are already big transport hubs with the lowest unemployment in the East
Midlands. The distribution sector alone employs 21 per cent of Worksop’s
workforce.
