Think globally, act personally,
AMEC, has put this approach into practice with the launch of the innovative North East Engineering Centre in Darlington. The centre has recently announced the creation of 40 new engineering opportunities, expected to be recruited during 2013.
Why has the Engineering Centre been created?Following the award of major contracts in the oil, gas and clean energy sectors, AMEC has launched the North East Engineering Centre. The Centre will act as an engineering hub, where teams of engineers will work centrally from Darlington, to support requirements for these UK and international projects.
The North East Engineering Centre has been launched as part of AMEC's ongoing strategy to build their workforce and operations in Darlington. AMEC currently employs around 420 workers at Lingfield Point, which became the company's new home in Darlington last October.
The North East's reputation in the engineering and chemical process industries was crucial in the decision to bring 40 new jobs to Darlington. Nicola Mason, the Operations Director for AMEC in Darlington, said:
"This is really exciting news. The skills and experience of our workforce has helped us to beat some very tough competition to win these contracts. This region has a strong engineering history and we are delighted to be bringing these high quality jobs to Darlington.
"We have settled in well to Lingfield Point. One of the key reasons behind us moving here was that we would have the space to expand. AMEC is a very ambitious company and we hope to be adding more staff if we win additional contracts later this year. We are very committed to Darlington. The legacy of the Tees Valley engineering and chemical process industries means that this area has a lot of people with the type of skills we need so we don't expect to have any problems finding the high calibre of staff we need."
