Train demand leads to 200 new staff at Bombardier

Train manufacturer Bombardier plans to hire an additional 200 staff at its Derby site to meet growing demand for new trains.

Having already returned all its previously furloughed staff to work, the company says 100 new recruits will join the company this month, with an additional 100 set to join in August.  

Matt Byrne, president of Bombardier Transportation (UK and Ireland), told BusinessLive: “The safe restart of operations has gone well and we have held productive discussions with our customers and with the government on mitigating the ongoing impact of the virus on our production and delivery.

“This is allowing us to resume the recruitment we had always planned to support our production ramp-up.

“We expect these positive discussions to continue and can now look forward to another 100 frontline staff joining us in August.”
