10 Mar 14  | Recruitment News

Merseylink is looking for at least 500 members of staff to aid work on its Mersey Gateway Bridge.

The £600 million project attracted a great deal of interest from companies around Britain when they were asked to submit their bids for its construction. says the six lane toll passover will link the towns of Runcorn and Widnes, relieving congestion along the ageing and overburdened Silver Jubilee Bridge.

With its preferred bidder status now confirmed, Merseylink is looking to take on around 500 skilled members of staff to assist in its construction.

Project director Steve Cardwell backed the Mersey Gateway to become a landmark construction for Europe and said his company would need the "strongest possible team" if it was to realise its plans.

He told "This will be one of the largest civil engineering projects in Europe over the next three-and-a-half years and I'm confident we will be able to bring together highly motivated staff to take the project to fruition."

Some of the roles for the bridge will include project managers and site managers to work alongside Mr Cardwell, along with section managers, quantity surveyors, site engineers as well as general foremen and section foremen.

Merseylink believes its cable bridge will be finished by 2017.
