Mr Clark said: “We’ve recruited seven people via our advertisements with The Hub so far with a further two sheet metal workers starting next week.
“It was really quick and straightforward to get the word out there working with our contact at the Hub and I have recommended the service to a number of other businesses in the area.”
Bob Ferraby, manager for the Green Port Growth Programme skills and employment team, said: “The Hub has evolved since opening in 2015 and now we’ve broadened our services to incorporate all manufacturing, engineering and energy companies in the region.
“Not only do we help jobseekers; but also businesses. We want manufacturing and engineering firms in the area to know we have a lot to offer, whether it’s help with finding their next employee or sourcing funding for workforce training.”

Hull City Council leader, Councillor Stephen Brady, said: “The Green Port Hub is a valuable asset to the city and helps support recruiters within the renewable energy and manufacturing sectors.
“It’s fantastic to hear about companies using this resource to expand operations on a global level.”
