UP TO 1,000 jobs are to be created in Sheffield by the US information technology group EDS. The company is setting up a new services delivery centre at the city's Hallamshire Business Park, initially creating 300 IT jobs. There are plans to recruit a further 700 employees in the longer term.

A third of the workforce will be trainees, either apprentices, graduates or people looking for a career change. David Blunkett (pictured), the Secretary of State for Education and Science and a local MP, welcomed the investment and EDS's commitment to take on so many trainees.
