Iberdrola to create new jobs for Scottish electrical course attendees

Electrical course attendees in Scotland may have a range of new employment opportunities available to them thanks to new plans from Iberdrola.

The Spanish energy giant, which owns ScottishPower, has stated its intention to increase the size of its Iberdrola Engineering and Construction UK division, having recently completed the incorporation of 96 members of the ScottishPower Energy Networks team.

Among the projects set to be undertaken by the newly-expanded business is work on power lines and substations in Scotland, north Wales and Merseyside, as well as various renewable energy programmes.

The firm, which has operated with around 30 employees since 2009, is now set to hire up to a total of 150 workers by the end of this year.

Peter Jones, regional director of Iberdrola Engineering and Construction UK, added: "There are major construction opportunities in the UK energy sector and we hope that the business will continue to expand in the coming years."

Earlier this week, Catriona Lingwood of business support organisation Constructing Excellence in the North East told that there is an increasing demand for staff in the construction trade, due to a shortage of younger workers.
