Sevcon begin search for skilled engineering technicians and test engineers
Electric vehicle innovator Sevcon has announced an initial recruitment drive for 20 skilled engineers has begun - a number that’s expected to grow by 200 over the next three years.
As part of an ambitious growth strategy, the firm last month confirmed a move into new, larger HQ, just 200-yards from the company’s existing premises in Gateshead, North East England.
Sevcon’s strategy includes the creation of some 200 jobs over the next three years – big increases from the 80 skilled engineers who are currently on site.
This search follows the announcement of a series of major orders for the Nasdaq-listed business, which posted sales of £40m for 2016, with a total contract value of £320m.
Louise Morshead, Human Resources Manager at Sevcon, said:
“These are exciting times for the business and we are keen to hear from ambitious technicians and test engineers looking to take the next step in their career.
“A skilled, enthusiastic and driven workforce is the key to taking on the challenges to develop state-of-the-art technology, for the modern world of environmentally friendly vehicles.
“The business is growing quickly with many major motor manufacturers turning to Sevcon to support the switch from traditional petrol and diesel vehicles to next generation electric and hybrid vehicles.
“Sevcon has strong roots in the North East and is very keen to invest in and nurture local talent,” she continued. “In particular, we’re looking for male and female technicians and engineers wanting to make their mark in the world.”
