Audi to Hire 500 This Year

German manufacturer Audi announced today it will hire additional personnel to meet its company needs. After in the beginning of the year the carmaker forecast it will hire 300 people in 2010, it now says it will hire a total of 500 this year.

Most of the new jobs will be related to electric mobility and lightweight design, two of the main directions Audi has chosen for itself. The 500 new employees will be added to the existing 782 apprentices which joined or will join the Ingolstadt-based company this year.

“We’re seeking out experts in electrification and lightweight design, in particular, so that we can further consolidate our technological edge over the competition,”
Werner Widuckel, Audi member of the board for Human Resources said.

“Especially in these areas, we must be farsighted,
” he added. “We are searching for  people who unite innovative brilliance with passion and expert craftsmanship.”

Currently, Audi has several training programs for its employees: vocational training, dual-track education, internships, first job experience program, development program for graduates and even doctorate degrees.

The carmaker is being considered by students one of the most attractive employers in Germany. These at least were the results of a study conducted earlier this year by Universum and Trendence consulting institutes.

“Audi offers attractive products and success. And, consequently, a working environment which is attractive as well as secure. It is precisely that which constitutes a top-notch employer nowadays. The enthusiasm among the many Audi applicants is clear proof of that!”
Michael Gross, Audi head of Personnel Marketing added.
