Siemens has launched the next major phase of recruitment for its new wind turbine blade factory in Hull, by advertising 100 jobs that will take the numbers hired to over 500.
The newly-advertised positions are for four Group Leads, seven Team Leads, three Quality Controllers and a total of 86 Operatives in the Warehouse, Maintenance, Packing, Coating, Assembly and Finishing departments. It is the second largest number of jobs advertised at one time by the German engineering giant in Hull.
The positions are the first to be made available that will see new recruits hired after the city's blade factory at Alexandra Dock opens in September, with start dates for the roles between then and November.
As the factory will then be operational, these are also the first jobs that will not require recruits to travel to Siemens’ sister blade factory in Aalborg, Denmark, for training. From September all training will take place at a combination of the Hull College Group Composites Training Centre on the Preston Road estate, at a warehouse at Alexandra Dock which has been converted into a training facility, and the factory itself.
