Nissan is looking for 200 new staff

Nissan launches recruitment drive for engineers and technicians

Nissan is recruiting for 200 new engineers and maintenance technicians to maintain its "record production levels".

Carmaker Nissan has opened a website for prospective employees to find out more about jobs at its Sunderland factory and says it will aim to match a number of vacancies with skilled engineers facing redundancy from the defence industry.

"These new recruits will play a key role not only in maintaining our record production levels, but in making sure that our battery plant and future new models are introduced successfully," said Kevin Fitzpatrick, vice president for manufacturing in the UK.

The factory, which started production in 1986, employs 5,000 workers and is currently developing two new models, the 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf and the next generation Qashqai.
