A project as ambitious as Weavers Cross will create a fantastic first impression of Belfast as a progressive and confident capital city. In 2016 alone, there were an estimated 4.6 million overnight trips in Northern Ireland. This development will efficiently deliver regular travellers and visitors to the city centre and positively assist the ongoing development of the tourism sector.

End use employment – The boost in the region’s economy ultimately leads to many employment opportunities in related sectors, including the visitor economy, customer services, retail, facilities management, security, tertiary services and ultimately sustainable transport services.

The build and engineering of the Belfast Transport Hub and the wider development of Weavers Cross will lead directly to long term construction jobs potentially lasting up to 15 years on the surrounding site.

Building a skilled workforce for Belfast

The Belfast Transport Hub and Weavers Cross project will be dedicated to its Buy Social commitments model during the construction of this project.

Buy Social is a way to maximise the benefits from public procurement in terms of personal well-being, social cohesion and inclusion, equal opportunities and sustainable development.  One of the primary ways that social benefit has been achieved through public procurement in recruitment and training.

In addition, Buy Social is about delivering real benefits to local communities.

These benefits include:

  • Targeted recruitment and training for people who are long-term unemployed and leaving education
  • Opportunities for people with disability or learning difficulties
  • The provision of skills
  • Working with schools and colleges to enrich the curriculum

In preparation for these opportunities, the Weavers Cross project will host local involvement to promote these opportunities and provide readiness in our local and neighbouring communities.  The aim is to provide real training for real construction jobs.
