Additional Information

Young's Seafood has announced that it is to create 200 new jobs following the award of a new contract to serve Marks and Spencer. There had been some uncertainty about whether these jobs would be needed because shortly after gaining the Marks and Spencer contract, it was announced that Young's would no longer be working for Asda. However, it is now being reported that the new jobs are being created and that the recruitment process for the positions is underway. There is no information on when the jobs are expected to be filled.
