Assystem have successfully won order from Rolls-Royce for jet engines and thus need to effectively double the size of their site in Derby in order to keep up with demand.
The engineering consultancy currently has two sites, one in Pride Park and the other at Wyvern Business Park. They also have a team based at the Rolls-Royce campus in Sinfin and are also planning to open a new office in the City which will employ 100 people.
The company also has impressive plans to ensure the professional development of their engineers by setting up an in-house training institute for graduates and apprentices. This is expected to start in 2013.
Pete Brown, Regional Operations Manage at Assystem, said: “In the next three years, I expect we will be taking on more than 300 people across the Midlands and the majority of those will be based in Derby.
It has come to a point where we no longer want to rely on contract labour to fulfil our commitments.
Ensuring we have the skills for the future means we need to employ a lot more skilled people and bring in more graduates.”
This year, around 70 graduates in engineering and business will be given full-time jobs at Assystem.
