Oxfordshire Science Park to Create 1,000 Jobs

Culham Science Park in Oxfordshire is set to expand, with up to 1,000 new science and technology jobs.

Three new research labs and office space have been discussed at the Abingdon site, and a planning application has been sent to the council. The 1,000 jobs include skilled and unskilled workers, including the construction of the new buildings and the scientists then working in them once they have been completed.

The created jobs are set to expand the workforce at the Science Park by 50%, to near 3,000. Should planning permission be granted, private companies will be invited to move operations to the park, before construction begins. Currently with 2,000 staff and 45 companies, the Culham Science Park is part of Science Vale UK, which includes two other Oxfordshire sites employing over 10,000 people between them. The expanding of the Abingdon site can only boost the area’s scientific centre credentials further.

Pete Brown, Regional Operations Manage at Assystem, said: “In the next three years, I expect we will be taking on more than 300 people across the Midlands and the majority of those will be based in Derby.

It has come to a point where we no longer want to rely on contract labour to fulfil our commitments.

Ensuring we have the skills for the future means we need to employ a lot more skilled people and bring in more graduates.”

This year, around 70 graduates in engineering and business will be given full-time jobs at Assystem.
