Cllr Tony Brennan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “Our Knowsley Works team has a fantastic track record of finding employment and training opportunities aligned to our residents’ needs so I’d encourage anyone who is looking for work, looking to move jobs or looking to upskill, to call in and speak to the team today.”
