The project will create significant job opportunities across many professions. The construction industry will benefit significantly as will organisations involved in the servicing and maintaining of buildings once occupied. There will be a wide range of jobs in the health sector across all levels with many jobs created in the running of the sports / leisure centre and the wellness hotel.
Research and development activity in the life science, health and ICT sectors will generate new businesses which will establish and grow through the business support and incubation facility. New businesses will be joined by already-established businesses looking to expand and diversify, strengthening South Wales’ vibrant SME community.
We expect the job opportunities to recognise both the immediate needs of the area and the longer term aspirations of younger people. We will work alongside our educational partners to develop new and exciting training courses.
The project has high aspirations to benefit the locality by aligning the job, training and research opportunities with the improvement of the health and wellbeing of the people of South Wales.
