Siemens kickstarts recruitment drive at Goole train factory

Siemens Mobility has recruited 35 new employees in the first major wave of recruitment for its state-of-the-art train manufacturing facility in Goole.

Ahead of production beginning this spring, the first wave of recruitment will be followed by many more roles over the coming months across multiple functions, including mechanical and electrical technicians for train assembly, warehouse and logistics operatives and roles in quality assurance.

Siemens Mobility is investing up to £200m in developing the facility in the East Yorkshire town, where it is creating up to 700 skilled jobs, as well as generating around 1,700 new employment opportunities in the supply chain. Rolling stock for the UK train market will be manufactured at the factory, starting with new Piccadilly line Tube trains for Transport for London.

The factory is the centrepiece of a wider rail village, featuring a train components servicing facility, a materials and logistics warehouse, and a research, development and innovation cluster, establishing Goole as a centre of excellence for rail technology in the UK.

Mark Speed, site director and general manager of Siemens Mobility in Goole, said: “It’s an incredibly exciting time for the project with the recruitment programme moving forward strongly ahead of production starting in 2024. We’re absolutely delighted with the calibre of recruits and they’ve already hit the ground running. They will all have an important part to play in the success of this pioneering project.

“This is just the first in a series of waves of recruitment, with many more exciting opportunities opening up over coming months. Those positions will all be posted on the careers section of the Siemens website as they become available, so we’re urging people to register on the Careers site and save alerts for Goole to ensure they are aware of the jobs as soon as they come out.”
