More Jobs Are Coming to Brevard County!

Posted on: November 8, 2011

Great news for Florida and especially Brevard County! 380 new jobs are coming to the Space Coast!

New numbers just released by the Pentagon show that Patrick Air Force Base will be gaining 156 new jobs, and 224 new jobs will be added at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in about a year from now. Within the state of Florida, the total increase will be 493 jobs spread across our state’s nine bases.

This announcement comes after the Air Force said that it will be making some civilian job cuts nationwide, in an effort to cut defense spending. However, it also announced that it will be adding 5,900 positions in areas such as acquisition, nuclear enterprise, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, which are the types of jobs done at our bases here in Brevard County. So, despite the Air Force’s job cut announcement, Florida is coming out ahead with a 4 percent civilian job gain!

Along with last week’s news that Boeing will be bringing new jobs to the Space Coast as well, things are looking great here in Brevard County!
