This week iconic vehicle manufacturers Aston Martin had a major recruitment open day at Cardiff and Vale College. The goal was to find skilled staff for their new factory in St Athan, Wales and provide people with an opportunity to find out more about the varied roles which are currently waiting to be filled.
The event was a huge success and the turnout surpassed all expectations, with almost 3,000 attendees hoping to land a position at the factory. They ranged from recent school and college leavers looking for apprentice roles, to highly experienced individuals who have worked in the automotive business for many years.
The new site will be handed over to Aston Martin in 2017, and the company will begin employing new staff the following year. When the new factory opens, it will create jobs for 750 people in the area, providing valuable employment opportunities. At this particular open day, the company was in search of build technicians, paint sprayers, leather trimmers and sewing machinists to contribute towards the creation of their prestigious cars.
The success of this event demonstrates just how many people are in search of motor trade jobs, particularly for highly renowned brands such as Aston Martin, who have become iconic for producing some of the world’s finest and most sought-after vehicles.
