Renault’s sites at Batilly, Cléon, Douai, Flins, Grand-Couronne, Le Mans and Maubeuge are launching the 2016 hiring campaign.
These new recruitments follow the hiring of 500 permanent employees in the Group’s French plants in 2015 and are part of 1,000 new hires announced for 2016 in France, half of which will be in French manufacturing and logistics sites.
On Wednesday, February 24, the Renault sites at Batilly, Cléon, Douai, Flins, Grand-Couronne, Le Mans and Maubeuge announced to the Works Council and to their employees the hiring of 399 people on permanent contracts.
The permanent positions offered across these manufacturing and logistics sites include all occupational categories (production workers, technicians, engineers and managers) and will target young graduates and experienced candidates alike, having qualifications ranging from vocational certificates to two-year vocational diplomas and university degrees.
Groupe Renault is also pursuing its commitment to promote diversity by setting the goal to hire women into 30% of factory jobs.
This hiring campaign will involve line operators, plant operators, paint repairers, electrical mechanics, maintenance, production management and supplier quality technicians, manufacturing managers with experience and young engineers.
Following the first wave, other sites will continue the campaign in the upcoming weeks.
José Vicente de los Mozos, Member of the Executive Committee, Executive Vice President, Manufacturing & Supply Chain Groupe Renault: “Through the agreement signed in 2013 by three trade unions (CFDT, CFE-CGC and FO) representing 70% of the workforce, we boosted the activity of our French plants, which are becoming more and more competitive and therefore more attractive to our partners. With more than 660,000 vehicles produced in 2015, this increased activity is translating into new hires in France, at a level significantly higher than the commitment made in 2013.”
