UK: BMW creates 1,000 new jobs

BMW, the largest premium carmaker in the world will hire 1,000 new permanent employees throughout its four UK manufacturing plants.

BMW says most of the jobs will be at the Mini plant in Oxford, but the Group’s pressings plant in Swindon, engine plant at Hams Hall, near Birmingham, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars plant in Goodwood, West Sussex are all set to benefit.

According to the official press release, workers on temporarily contracts will be given priority.

The initial recruiting phase will start the New Year and covers about 700 new jobs, while the recruitment process for the remaining 300 contracts will start in 2016.
Overall the company is to increase the number of manufacturing employees by 15 percent by the end of 2016.
In the UK, car output rose by 17 percent last month compared to the same period of 2012, The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said. For the first 10 month of the year, the entire industry has produced 1,286,287 cars.

In addition, SMMT has revised its forecast for this year – from about 2.22 million car registrations to 2.25 million vehicles – that’s about 10 percent more.
More than $4.2 billion has been invested into the UK car industry as companies like Bentley and JLR Jaguar Land Rover increase investments in many factories across the country.

Britain’s unemployment rate fell to 7.6 percent in the three months to September – that’s the lowest level in four years.
