Manufacturing Jobs on the Rise

The BBC website has reported that UK Manufacturing jobs are on the Rise.

The report based on the Markit/CIPS Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) ticked up to 56.9 from 56.6 in January, higher than the 56.5 expected by economists. A figure above 50 indicates expansion.

With manufacturing making up around 10% of the UK economy it is widely believed that this increase coupled with strong growth in other sectors will see quarter 1 for the UK grow significantly.

City Centre Recruitment, with offices in Yeovil, Weymouth, Bournemouth and Southampton can confirm that this national upturn in manufacturing is being felt in the counties of Somerset, Dorset and Hamsphire.

Nikki Nunez, Business Development Manager for City Centre Recruitment commented

Since the beginning of 2013 the number of engineering and technical jobs in Bournemouth and the wider East Dorset area have been increasing month on month. We have a range of engineering jobs we are trying to source candidates for from machinist jobs through to senior CNC Programmer Jobs.

The team and I constantly scour the UK for suitable candidates, trying to tempt them down with the benefits of living next to the sea. The strategy is obviously working as the number of technical jobs we are now filling is starting to challenge the number of our traditional core blue collar work.

The growth of manufacturing in the South has recently been backed up by the £14 million investment being made in the Granby Industrial Estate in Weymouth, Dorset. Last month planners approved phase 2 of this expansion which will include seven new units on the estate aimed at small to medium sized businesses looking to expand into large production facilities.
