Siemens is beginning a recruitment drive to hire 1000 people for its workforce in Hull.

A number of jobs are now available, but most will be advertised later this year.

There’ll be a range of opportunities including working within the blade factory, engineering and managerial positions.

Applicants are expected to live locally or commit to relocate to the area.

Siemens’ Head of Human Resources for the Hull project, Carolyn Woolway, says:

“We want people to have clarity, at the earliest opportunity, about the types of roles, skill sets and experience we are looking for so, if necessary, they can be proactive about upskilling themselves to fit the requirements.

“If a person does want to work us and there is a specific job they are interested in, there will be time for them to enhance their skills or look at whatever other support here may be available to put them in the best possible position to apply for the role.

“We believe giving people early visibility of these positions will be helpful to potential candidates, but we are also appealing for people to be patient. The recruitment process will take time because of the volume of jobs involved and our determination to manage the process thoroughly to ensure we get the very best recruits and applicants have the best possible opportunity to work with us.

“We have always said we want to recruit local people and this new facility opens the door to a lot of people who live and work locally who we know have similar and transferable skill sets.”

Along with ABP (Associated British Ports), Siemens is investing £310m in the Hull project, the biggest ever inward investment in the city.
