Skyline Development Could Create Almost 600 Jobs In Swansea

Skyline Swansea, a proposed leisure attraction for the Kilvey Hill area, could create almost 600 jobs in the Welsh city, according to the developers.

The company says that almost 120 permanent jobs would be created by the development, as well as more than 230 temporary jobs in the construction stage.

With the addition of a further 300+ jobs in the supply chain, bosses say that the venture could create around 600 jobs for Swansea and other parts of the UK.

Skyline Enterprises is a New Zealand-headquartered adventure tourism firm which has already launched ventures similar to the Swansea proposal at Queenstown and Rotorua in its home country, as well as other attractions in Canada, Singapore and South Korea.

There is also a further Skyline Enterprises visitor centre set to launch in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia soon.

Developers say that the opportunities created in Swansea will include apprenticeships, graduate vacancies and school leaver positions as well as managerial positions.

The attraction is set to feature a range of facilities such as Gondola lifts, Luge tracks and a zip line.There will also be food and drink areas, along with hiking and biking trails.

Outlining the scheme and the opportunities it could potentially create in Swansea, Chief Executive Officer of Skyline Enterprises, Geoff McDonald, said:

“The proposals include some plans for seasonal workers, alongside long-term career opportunities for those wanting to work in management, hospitality, tourism and marketing. We’ll be looking to hire teams at all stages of their careers - from school leavers and university graduates through to senior management roles.”

“As a result of this, profits would be funnelled back into the Swansea economy through employment and training, employee and visitor spend, and investment back into the site - contributing to economic growth in the area for decades to come.”

“Through community partnerships, Skyline would support local education and training initiatives meaning those who previously had to relocate for careers in leisure and tourism could stay in their hometown; schools could access on-site, real-time lessons in engineering and technology in action; colleges and universities could access industry placements and work experience.”

“We plan to recruit as many locals as possible if successful with proposals and would champion long-term career development through apprenticeships, training opportunities and managerial roles.”

“Overall, our goal is to create a world-class leisure destination that the local area can be proud of, serving visitors and locals alike,” added the CEO.
