BAC set to recruit as part of massive expansion
Bespoke supercar manufacturer BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) is set to employ a new wave of talented staff as part of its massive expansion plans, with a number of desirable roles going up for grabs with the manufacturer of the One-of-a-Kind Mono supercar.
A true British success story, BAC has achieved worldwide acclaim and success for the brilliance of its driver-focused Mono and has exported in to 30 territories around the globe so far.
Plus, it recently launched BAC USA out of Sonoma, California, to join Liverpool and South East Asia on its official dealer roster, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
As such, BAC is looking to bring skilled and driven new employees to its Liverpool headquarters across numerous divisions to work with its current crop of experienced and talented professionals.
It’s currently offering six jobs to the right candidates in engineering, manufacturing, design and sales as part of its first wave of recruitment. BAC will welcome more new staff going forward to keep it at the top of the industry.
And with the future in mind, BAC recently launched its first apprenticeship scheme and took on two students from the nearby Riverside College – further demonstrating its devotion to the local area and preparation for excitement to come.
The apprentices started work on Monday 27 March, one of whom specialising in bodywork and the other will work on sub-assembly and chassis dress.
BAC Co-Founder and Director of Product Development, Neill Briggs, said: “We have a number of dream roles going up for grabs and want to invite the right candidates to come forward and be heard. Our expansion over the years has been rapid to say the least, and we’re very excited to bring in some new blood to propel us forwards once more.”
Fellow Founder and Design Director, Ian Briggs, added: “At BAC, we are very much a family who pull together to push towards their goals. We believe in quick progression at BAC and can offer a fantastic working atmosphere, an excellent social life, the chance to attend some of the most high-profile events in the automotive world and travel around the globe spreading the BAC message and basking in the glory of the Mono.”
Since its launch in 2011 it has been going from strength to strength and is now sold in several markets around the world. It launched with great success and fanfare in Hong Kong at the end of 2015, with eight cars sold in a single night. BAC dealers can also be found in North America, Japan and London.
The 2016 model year version of the Mono comes with a four-cylinder 305bhp 2.5-litre Mountune engine, which takes the 580kg car from 0-60mph in just 2.8sec.
BAC recently launched a carbon hybrid wheel and announced the use of super material graphene, which is up to 20 per cent lighter than carbon fibre and as much as 200 times stronger than steel.
Despite its global appeal, BAC Mono remains proudly British, with parts sourced from its home country wherever possible.
