Swindon recruitment firm C&D Group is to help expanding engineering firm Knorr-Bremse Rail Systems take on more than 20 permanent workers at its Melksham factory as demand for its innovative products increases around the world.
Knorr-Bremse employs 360 people in Melksham making a wide range of train parts such as advanced braking, monitoring and control systems for railway operators and manufacturers across the globe.
The firm, part of the German industry group Knorr-Bremse, also operates three other major sites around the UK, all of which are enjoying growing levels of business.
As a result it has called on its recruitment partner C&D to recruit more than 20 permanent employees for the Melksham site with more following in the very near future.
Posts include management accountant, project manager, innovation manager, RAMS (reliability, availability, maintainability and safety) manager as well as buyers, quality engineers, systems engineers, electronic engineers and a variety of engineering jobs.
Knorr-Bremse HR business partner Georgie Reeves said: “We are delighted that our continued business success has led to the need for us to recruit new expertise into our teams and we see them as crucial to our plans for further growth.”
C&D managing director Karen Davison added: “We have seen an encouraging level of both temporary and contract vacancies in the early part of 2014 but it is really encouraging news for the British economy to see multiple permanent opportunities following closely behind, such as those that we are now recruiting for Knorr-Bremse.”
