Employers Announce Substantial Job Creation

Posted in Candidates, Employers on Mar 05, 2012 by Richard Hayden

Whilst the cold weather may still have some way to thaw before we can officially say that spring has sprung, the job market is showing positive signs of growth as major manufacturers and employers generate jobs throughout the UK.

Car maker Nissan has revealed a new hatchback concept car, INVITATION, which will be produced at Nissan’s Sunderland plant, creating 400 new jobs at the plant and a further 1,600 elsewhere at Nissan in the UK and amongst its UK supplier base.

Tesco also announced this week that they will be creating 20,000 jobs in the UK over the next two years by improving stores and opening new ones.  Commenting further that the new jobs would include full and part-time positions; alongside some apprenticeship placements for new employees offering a range of opportunities for those seeking employment in the UK.

The good news continues as Jaguar Land Rover’s decision to invest in the creation of 1,000 new jobs at its plant in Solihull will take affect this year.  The news follows their announcement last year to build a £335m engine plant in Staffordshire, which experts believe could help to create an additional 3,600 jobs in the automotive supply chain.

Other companies also in the news;

  • Holiday resort operator Centre Parcs is adding a fifth UK resort in Bedfordshire creating 3,000 new jobs

  • Hotel and Restaurant group Whitbread will create over 10,000 jobs across the UK during the next 3 years

  • Eye care company Optical Express is to create 100 new customer care jobs and will hire an undisclosed number of other new employees as it rolls out 24 new clinics across the UK and Ireland.
