Design, engineering and recruitment firm Contechs is on the lookout for talented individuals keen to explore exciting employment opportunities in next-generation electrical/electronic architecture and electric-vehicle platforms to join them at its upcoming recruitment day.
The recruitment day, which will be held on 22 November at the Marriott Delta Hotel Warwick between 12.30pm and 7.30pm, invites those with a passion for engineering and keen to develop new skills to support OEMs and first-tier suppliers around the globe for the next generation of electric vehicles.
The company, which is offering more than 175 job opportunities across the Midlands and Essex, is actively looking for the nation’s best and brightest candidates, with electrical engineering experience or who specialise in E/E architecture development and EV platforms.
Using agile enhancement methods and clearly defined processes in E/E architecture and EV development, Contechs delivers integrated eMobility, autonomous driving and internet connectivity into vehicle design.
According to the company, opportunities are available to those with transferable skills with a background in electrical or automotive engineering, as well as a passion for developing the next generation of technologies.
With an estimated 477,000 electric cars on the road as of this year, along with more than 790,000 hybrids, the electric vehicle market has experienced a momentous rise in recent years and has been predicted to skyrocket in the coming years as the UK braces itself for the upcoming 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicle sales. According to Contechs, it has responded to the accelerated growth in the market by ramping up its pursuit of new candidates to fill hundreds of newly created roles.
While there’s currently a significant skills shortage in the sector, Contechs managing director Pete Jarvis is confident that the company will attract the candidates it needs to drive its ambitious growth plans forward. ‘Over the years, Contechs’ investment in people has consistently produced a strong network of design and engineering experts by operating a culture of continuous improvement within the business,’ Jarvis said. ‘Ultimately, it is vital to provide a strong platform and nurture all-important skill sets if Britain is to make its mark as a global leader in the EV market. It is therefore crucial to bridge the skills gap as quickly as possible to ensure the UK’s workforce keeps pace with the latest technologies.
‘Ensuring we have the right people and provide a platform to develop new skills to support the growing needs of engineering in the UK has always been at the core of Contechs,’ he continued. ‘We are very much looking forward to the upcoming recruitment day on 22 November and meeting talented individuals who can help support the growth of the EV industry over the coming years.’
