Energy giant Centrica is looking for Teesside workers as part of a major push for growth.
Skilled workers from managers to engineers, technicians and chemists are needed as part of an ambitious drive to boost gas production from the East Irish Sea and secure the future activity in the region.
Bosses say the jobs, across Centrica’s Barrow, Heysham and offshore bases are perfect for Teessiders as the distance and shift patterns make them easily commutable.
Centrica, which is the UK’s biggest supplier of domestic energy, has announced plans to increase its global activity by 50% within the next five years – bringing with it further jobs and energy career opportunities in the UK and abroad.
The vacancies come as new figures reveal record investment in UK oil and gas reserves over the last quarter, which indicates the UK still houses plenty of energy reserves in the East Irish and North seas.
Mike Astell, Centrica Energy’s regional director for the East Irish Sea, said: “Our East Irish Sea operations play a vital role in securing the UK’s energy supply.”
The East Irish Sea is home to the North and South Morecambe gas fields which are among the largest gas fields in the UK.
