Nissan has announced has a major recruitment drive at its Sunderland plant with plans to hire 400 new members of staff.
The Japanese firm says it is offering both permanent and temporary positions across a range of sectors at the factory.
Among the roles on offer are technician jobs and engineering roles.
The carmaker will soon begin making an all-new electric vehicle, called the EV36Zero and the new recruits will be heavily involved.
Nissan vice president Alan Johnson said: ‘This is a real vote of confidence in Sunderland from our parent company in Japan and will really reaffirm Sunderland’s reputation as a world-class manufacturer.
‘These new recruits will play an important role in preparing the plant for the arrival of the new all-electric crossover model, as well as delivering Qashqai, Juke and LEAF to our customers in more than 130 world markets.’
The news comes just weeks after Nissan announced plans for a new £1bn gigafactory in Sunderland.
The new site will be partially funded by the government and is set to create a whopping 750 new jobs.
