JCB has announced plans to create 450 new jobs in the UK as the construction sector begins to flourish despite the ongoing pandemic.

The machine company has also announced that it will convert a further 400 existing workshop employees from contract status to permanent positions in the course of this year.

The Staffordshire-based company appeared to have weathered the storm of the coronavirus outbreak and is now hiring after demand for its products and services increased again from regions such as North America and Europe.

JCB’s 450 new full-time and part-time jobs will be based in its facilities in Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Wrexham.

The roles offered – both new and existing employees of the agency – include assembly workers, CNC machinists (computer controlled), processors, forklift drivers and welders

All contract workers who have been with JCB for more than a year are expected to receive more job security as the company has committed to converting them to permanent employees before the end of 2021.

Announcing the new positions at his company, Mark Turner, Chief Operating Officer of JCB, said, “The post-Covid-19 pandemic recovery continues and even within a month of our recruiting process, we need now another 450 employees in the workshop. “

“The creation of a total of 850 jobs this year is very good news for our company and for the areas in which we are active. It’s also good news that we will be adding more than 700 agency employees to JCB perpetual contracts this year starting this month, ”added Turner.
