Airbus to create 300 new UK jobs

Airbus has announced it is to expand its operations in the UK by creating hundreds of new jobs across two of its sites. The plane-maker is to create approximately 300 new positions in both Flintshire and Bristol as part of its latest expansion plan. The firm is aiming to hire an extra 3,000 professionals across Europe this year, and roughly a tenth of those will be in Britain. With Airbus chiefs claiming to have taken on in the region of 10,000 new staff between 2011 and 2012, it seems the year ahead will be another of significant growth. The potential for new roles in Europe is being driven by Airbus' projects on the A320neo and the A350 XWB twin jet. The wings of the A320 series of jets are manufactured by Airbus at its base in Broughton, Flintshire. Experts working at this site are also responsible for working on the latest wing technology and make use of the purpose-built £400 million factory. Earlier this year, Airbus confirmed it was creating 50 temporary jobs at its headquarters in Filton, near Bristol. This expansion was put down to the need to meet rising demand from around the world for its A400M military transport plane. By planning to take on extra staff across the two UK sites, Airbus could be providing good news for all those Britons who are keen to take up engineering jobs in the coming months. It has not yet been revealed how many of the new jobs will be positioned at each of the two sites. Airbus is expected to make more details of its planned expansion known at the International Paris Air Show, which is scheduled to take place later this month. This could provide more clues about the type of jobs set to be created by the firm and how they will play a part in its growth over the next few months and years.
