SKILLED building workers can register with a local job-matching service to help them find work in Kirklees.

Build - part of Kirklees Council's economic development service - keeps details of local job vacancies in all building trades.

There are now a number of vacancies for welders and fabricators.

More than 200 employers in Kirklees are members of Build and regularly contact the service to find workers.

The Build team checks the details of people registered on their database to put forward a list of suitable candidates.

Council Cabinet member Clr Andrew Pinnock said: "Difficulties with recruitment can take up precious time and money for companies.

"This service helps us to support local businesses by finding suitable, local applicants."

Build is paid for by development agency Yorkshire Forward and the European Union.
