Timms to visit Sheffield

Construction minister Stephen Timms will visit Sheffield on Monday to tour key city developments.

Mr Timms will visit training facilities at Construction Jobmatch South Yorkshire to discuss progress on helping local people secure jobs in the construction sector.

Construction Jobmatch South Yorkshire aims to tackle serious shortages of skilled labour in the local construction sector by employing and training people who are not traditionally considered for careers in construction including black and ethnic minorities, women and the long-term unemployed.
