Railway creates local jobs

THE Borders Railway project has announced its first wave of employment opportunities in Midlothian.

So far 15 local people have been employed, with a further three positions on the Borders Railway project delivery team now open.

The three new positions are junior roles within the commercial team at BAM Nuttall, recently announced as the main contractor.
