The Manufacturing Technology Centre at Ansty Park near Rugby is launching a major drive to recruit more than 100 highly-skilled engineers and trainees.

The MTC is recruiting senior research engineers, technology managers, chief engineers and technology specialists to boost its ground-breaking programmes in advanced high-value manufacturing systems and to join its acclaimed training schemes.

The new engineers are being brought in to work on projects including advanced 3D printing, intelligent automation, high integrity fabrication, metrology, and advanced tooling.

Last year saw a rapid expansion of the MTC’s skilled engineering resource, but the new engineers are being sought to join the centre which is currently fitting out a new £30 million Aerospace Research Centre jointly funded by the Aerospace Technology Institute and industrial partners.

MTC chief executive Dr Clive Hickman said: “These are high-skill, high-level engineering jobs and much-needed training places which will benefit the region as a whole, and in particular the industrial partners and SMEs who work with us. They will be working on world-leading machines and equipment, some of which is unique in the UK.”
