The recruitment drive has just got underway for the permanent jobs at JCB’s World Headquarters and its plants in Cheadle and Uttoxeter.
In September, JCB will also welcome an additional 15 new recruits on to its fabrication and welding apprenticeship. In the past three years, almost 70 welding apprentices have passed their courses – and all gained permanent JCB jobs.
The news comes as demand for JCB machines reaches historic highs with most products now sold out until next year. It also comes in a year when JCB has recruited 1,350 new shop floor employees and handed permanent JCB contracts to 1,000 agency employees.
