Nissan has confirmed it is hiring another 400 people at its Sunderland plant as it ramps up production of its Qashqai, Juke and Leaf models
This comes after the announcement that a £1bn investment would see the development of EV battery Gigafactory alongside its Sunderland plant, creating upwards of 1,600 more jobs.
Alan Johnson, vice president of manufacturing at the plant, said: "This is a real vote of confidence in Sunderland from our parent company in Japan and will really reaffirm Sunderland's reputation as a world-class manufacturer.
"These new recruits will play an important role in preparing the plant for the arrival of the new all electric crossover model, as well as delivering Qashqai, Juke and Leaf to our customers in more than 130 world markets."
