High calibre engineers and designers are needed to work on the next generation of MGs – and SAIC is on the hunt for them. SAIC Motor’s UK Technical Centre, based at Longbridge, needs to recruit professional engineers and designers. New MG cars, such as the MG6 models, now sell in dozens of countries.
David Lindley, Managing Director of SMTC UK, said: ‘MGs are designed and engineered in Birmingham and sold in an ever increasing number of markets throughout the world. As well as the UK and China, MG has recently expanded into markets such as Egypt, Uruguay and New Zealand. This is a huge success story for British designers and engineers and, we have a fantastic range of future products to work on.
‘But the rate of growth has increased pressure on us and we new need to recruit more top class people. We are looking for bright, professional automotive specialists who have the enthusiasm and drive to help us push the MG and Roewe brands even further ahead.’
SAIC Motor is the eighth largest automotive company in the world and includes both MG and Roewe, a brand sold exclusively in China, in its portfolio. Vacancies at the MG Birmingham site include specialists in body engineering, engines, transmissions, vehicle integration and design. A regional recruitment event took place on Tuesday, July 3 at Dunston Hall in Norwich.
