SeAH Wind launches mass recruitment drive to staff ‘huge’ new Teesside factory

A major push to fill hundreds of new highly skilled positions at the green energy firm is getting underway with the help of the Teesworks Skills Academy.

SeAH Wind Ltd has started its large-scale drive to recruit for positions including Welders, Platers, Roll Bending Machine Operatives, Mechanical and Electrical Technicians, Supervisors, and General Operatives for its huge monopile manufacturing facility on Teesworks.

Applications will be accepted via the company’s dedicated recruitment website where individuals can sign up for job alerts, register their expressions of interest and apply directly for jobs with the Company.

The company is also going to be holding events in all towns across Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Hartlepool over the coming months where more details will be shared about vacancies and training opportunities at the South Bank site. The upcoming events have been organised with the help of the Teesworks Skills Academy.

As well as hiring experienced workers, the state-of-the-art half mile long factory is also creating development opportunities to create future welders early this year, inviting aspiring individuals to apply.

SeAH Wind has joined forces with Nordic Products and Services and Middlesbrough College to create two programmes under its SeAH Wind Academy programme.

This will see 30 people put through a 24-week training and development programme with the help of the Tees Valley Combined Authority and its Adult Education Budget. Both programmes will equip successful individuals with the required knowledge and skills to gain employment as Welders with SeAH Wind.

Chris Musgrave, Teesworks Chairman, commented: “We’re making great progress across Teesworks and SeAH Wind’s efforts at South Bank have been great to see. We want to make Teesworks a success for all of Teesside and SeAH will bring good, well-paid jobs to our younger generations as well as our skilled experienced workers.

“Those who may have had to go further afield for projects can now take on a big job close to home, I’d encourage everyone to have a look and find out more as this could well be for you.”

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen added: “Bringing good, well-paid, green jobs to the people of Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool is what I want to do and what Teesworks is for. SeAH Wind is a big part of that aim and I’m delighted to see their push to get more boots on the ground is getting properly underway.”
