Creating job opportunities

The two phases of Peddimore will create up to 6,500 jobs on site and thousands more across the wider local supply chain.

The first phase of the development will create up to 3,000 jobs in the manufacturing and logistics sectors.

We also believe that Peddimore can be the catalyst for greater opportunities for local people who may not work directly at the site. These would be achieved through the potential for an increase in business and jobs in the local supply chain.

We have made a long-term commitment to deliver a programme of community benefits aligned to the Birmingham Skills Investment Plan, Birmingham City Council’s skills strategy to 2026.

Our programme aims to support and empower people local to Peddimore. We will build on third sector activities and the work of organisations currently active within local communities to create opportunities and deliver a legacy of sustained economic and social change.
