Hundreds of new jobs to be created thanks to Levelling Up grant

Almost 300 new jobs will be created at Hull city centre’s House of Hammonds building, thanks to a Government grant awarded to ResQ by the council.

The second floor of House of Hammonds will be renovated and brought back into use by the call centre company which currently occupies the first floor.

In the Decision Record published today, a Levelling Up grant of £750,000 has been awarded to RES Q Limited who will expand their current operations.

The funding will be used to refurbish the second floor including the creation of office and reception areas with new doors, walls, handrails and fob controlled entry/exits, as well as the installation of new electrics, plumbing and heating and decoration throughout.

The total project cost is just over £2million.

Garry Taylor, assistant director major projects, culture & place, said: “This project shows real commitment from Res Q Limited to a key city centre heritage building, with the creation of almost 300 jobs a huge benefit to the city.

“The Levelling Up Funding scheme continues to benefit many buildings and businesses in the city and this is another great example of this.”
