As of March 2017, approximately 850 directly employed staff had been recruited by Siemens Gamesa. The total number of jobs created by the turbine manufacturer at the Green Port Hull in May was at 1,063, with 90% of them located in the 30-mile radius of the Hull city centre, according to the Green Port Hull Impact Assessment (GIA) project.

The Green Port Hull (GPH) facilitated creation/ safeguarding of a total of 1,282 jobs by assisting people with employment and training support and upskilling training. GPH also supported 421 businesses with wage subsidies, upskilling funding, financial assistance, etc.

The Green Port Hull project was officially launched in December 2010, three weeks prior to Siemens signing the agreement with Associated British Ports (ABP) to invest in the Alexandra Dock site.

In 2012, Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council secured a GBP 25.7 million Regional Growth Fund (RGF) funding leading to the formation of the Green Port Growth Programme (GPGP), whose overall objectives are to, among other things, assist up to 650 local businesses to diversify and enter the supply chains of major renewables investors and their suppliers, upskill and train approximately 900 local people, and create 3,500 renewables sector jobs.

The GPGP aims to achieve these by March 2019.
