Motor manufacturer Seat to take on 233 new staff
25 November 2014 @ 10:49

SPANISH motor manufacturer Seat has announced plans to take on 233 workers ‘imminently’ to handle the increased demand for the Ibiza model and the Audi Q3.

Temporary staff will be contracted in January to cover the three shifts on Line 2.

Already this year, the firm has employed 550 new workers due to the healthy level of sales seen with the Seat León, and 200 of these were made permanent staff in October.

An agreement reached with unions means priority for permanent jobs now goes to those who have worked in temporary positions with Seat in the past.

The company took on 45 workers who had graduated from its apprenticeship programme in July to handle the launch of the new FP Dual model.

With the 233 extra workers due to join in the New Year, this will mean Seat has employed a total of 800 extra staff members in 12 months, according to vice-chairman of human resources, Josef Schelchshorn.
