Nissan to create 2,000 new jobs
6 March 2012
Japanese carmaker Nissan is set to create 2,000 new jobs with plans to build a new compact car.
Nissan’s new car model is named Invitation and is benefiting from a £125million investment from Nissan and a £9.3million government grant. It will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show.
400 of the new jobs will be based at the Sunderland plant, with further 1,600 roles to be created in the supply chain area. Production of the new model is scheduled to begin from middle of 2013.
Trevor Mann, MD of Nissan UK, says: “When we’ve looked at the numbers before, it’s usually for every one person employed in the facility there is four in the local supply base. The additional volume will maintain Sunderland as the country’s largest car plant and we expect and look forward to a very busy future.”
The Sunderland factory’s workforce will increase to 6,000, a record high for the factory.
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
