Offshore Energy Network to Create Jobs

Renewable energy group Norstec has been back by the government with the aim of creating thousands of jobs in the North East, reports the Northern Echo.

Norstec is a group of several companies in the North East, including the Deep Ocean Group and JDR Cables. The companies met to discuss how to make the best use of the potential of the sector which is expected to create around 1,000 jobs in the area. This is a major boost to offshore wind power as it shows a concerted effort by the government to back the sector.

The Prime Minister has stated that “close collaboration between industry and government will be critical to making this happen.” The Climate Change Secretary then added “The offshore wind industry represents a massive growth opportunity for the UK and our neighbours around the northern seas, bringing jobs and reenergising once thriving industrial heartlands on the east coast and beyond.”

GSK in Job and Tax Pledge

GlaxoSmithKline is set to create more UK jobs and pay more tax, helping the economy, reports the Guardian.

As CK Science has earlier reported, here, GSK is set to expand its UK operations, adding to the current 16,000 employees throughout Britain. Two sites in Scotland and one in county Durham are being looked into as locations to create new plants. This comes at a time when other companies with UK branches are scaling back their operations. Andrew Witty, GSK’s chief executive, has said that his company wants to “have more manufacturing and do more R&D work in Britain” leading to a greater amount of tax paid by GSK.

In the next few years, GSK expects to be a “net hirer” because the UK can strike a good balance between research and development support and competitive medicine prices. GSK has moved back into the black this year, recording a £1.1 billion profit in the second quarter, meaning that they can afford the expense of reopening UK operations.
