Birmingham Airport accounts for the bulk of the posts, with 4,000 jobs on site, and the same number again in the supply chain, as a result of a revamp that includes a £40 million extended runway, due to be operational next month.
Communications giant Vodafone is taking on an extra 1,400 staff, while Accenture, a global management consulting firm, is hiring 500 more staff. The announcements will provide a boost to the Prime Minister as he attempts to explain the measures unveiled in last month's budget during his "economy-focused" tour, which started yesterday at a branch of John Lewis in Greater Manchester. Ahead of the visits, Mr Cameron said: "A key part of our long-term economic plan is to create jobs and to cut taxes.
"So I am delighted that I can announce nearly 10,000 more jobs which will give people financial security for the future."
