...and nearly 40 jobseekers have been successful in getting a job after taking part in a socially distant recruitment drive at Grangetown Training & Employment Hub.
British Steel have announced that they will be pausing production at Skinningrove Special Profiles Mill.
The company made the announcement in statement on its website yesterday afternoon.
In it, the company said that trading conditions remain challenging, including for products manufactured by our Special Profiles business in Skinningrove, and that they have now taken the decision to again temporarily pause production at Skinningrove for three weeks, starting on Saturday June 13.
British Steel say the pause is a temporary measure and they'll be looking to resume production at the earliest opportunity.
The company has thanked all its employees for their continued commitment and flexibility.
Fortnightly garden waste collections in our area are to return.
Redcar and Cleveland’s garden waste will once again be collected fortnightly, starting on Tuesday 9 June.
The borough’s usual collection schedules will resume meaning households are being asked to put out their garden waste the same day as their blue recycling bin.
Due to a much-reduced workforce following the outbreak of COVID-19, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council suspended green waste collections so it could prioritise household and recycling collections.
Residents made the most of a special collection of garden waste over the past two weekends after the council’s refuse team worked extra shifts. Now garden waste collections will resume as normal on 9th June. Members of the public are being reminded that side rubbish will not be collected, and any garden waste needs to be contained within the correct bin.
Nearly 40 jobseekers have been successful in getting a job after taking part in a socially distant recruitment drive at Grangetown Training & Employment Hub.
Three interview sessions have been held at the hub so far to fill positions at food manufacturer business SK Foods, which needs to increase its workforce following the Covid-19 outbreak.
After performing well in the interviews, 36 people are moving through the induction phase and are waiting for their start dates.
To ensure health and safety Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has prepared the building with social distancing measures and introduced new hygiene regimes.
