Grimsby based seafood company Seachill has announced plans to create 200 new jobs, only weeks after it completed a previous recruitment drive. The company plans to create the new jobs in the spring of 2019. The previous expansion was made possible when the company signed new deals with supermarkets Tesco and Waitrose and it is understood that the latest expansion is a result of developing new product lines for the Waitrose contract. Concerns have been raised that the public transport links to the site will need to be improved in order to help local people access these new job opportunities.
