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.

Operations Director Liam O’Connell has recently attended an REC Skills Summit in London, which was intended to explain the disconnect between those out of work and the vacancies in many areas that could be filled.
The Summit brought together many from across a wide range of sectors, including life sciences, engineering and technology, so as to try to address the issues facing them. It is clear from these discussions that there is a significant skills gap, with many employers predicting these issues to continue for the near future.
To combat these problems, the REC have come up with a variety of methods, from investments in skills training by businesses, to apprenticeships created thanks to government policy. The apprenticeship policy seems as though it would be most effective, as around a quarter of employers said that they did not hire young people due to lack of skills or experience. It is necessary to train these young people in order to ensure that the skills are there in the future, rather than seeing the gap widen further.

Whilst experience is always a bonus, the hiring of graduates is also good for a successful business. Here are a few reasons why.
It may seem obvious, but an experienced person is going to want more money than a graduate, even if they are applying for the same position. To reduce annual company salaries it makes sense to hire the cheaper option.
Loyalty and Enthusiasm
The fact that you’ve hired a graduate and given them an initial taste of working life would tend to make them err on the side of gratuity. Carefully managed, this could translate into loyalty to your company. The inexperienced graduate would want to prove they can perform as best they can in their new job, possibly with little knowledge of the market and arguably their true worth. Should they turn out to be one of your better performers, managing them successfully could mean they stay for longer than they otherwise would.
New graduates are more likely to be adaptable and au fait with current and emerging technology. It could be better to have an employee who is more capable of throwing themselves into various fields of work, rather than an expert in just one or two. The ability to use new technology is also obviously a bonus, allowing your business to stay at the cutting edge of new developments.
These, plus other reasons that can be found on The Undercover Recruiter, are just a few reasons as to why graduates are excellent candidates to hire for your business.
