MG seeks engineers to meet growing international demand

04 July 2012 #SMMT News

MG has announced that it urgently needs high-calibre engineers and designers to work on the next generation of its cars.

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, 3 July at Dunston Hall in Norwich.

SAIC Motor’s UK Technical Centre, based at MG Birmingham, needs to recruit professional engineers and designers due to growing international demand for the MG brand. New MG cars, such as the MG6 models, now sell in dozens of countries.

“Modern MGs are designed and engineered in Birmingham and sold in an ever increasing number of markets throughout the world,” said David Lindley, Managing Director SMTC UK.

“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 now 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.
