Trailer and commercial vehicle body manufacturer Tiger Trailers is recruiting 50 new employees to start work at its state-of-the-art facility in Winsford, Cheshire (UK).
The employment drive supports a surge in demand for trailers and HGVs due to the increase in home deliveries and online shopping.
The 168,000 sq ft site – which opened in April 2019 – already employs 213 people and is located on the Winsford Industrial Estate.
Various jobs are on offer including forklift truck drivers, semi-skilled operatives, hydraulic fitters, auto electricians, coachbuilders and welders. Pay rates range from £11.36 to £18.85 per hour depending on position, experience, and shifts.
Edward Booth, finance director at Tiger Trailers, said: “We are seeing record amounts of orders because consumer buying habits have shifted so drastically due to Covid-19. The jobs we’ve created will enable us to exceed this demand and at the same time, provide an economic boost for Winsford by providing locals with new opportunities on their doorstep.”
New employees will enjoy benefits including pay increases after 12 weeks, overtime, bonus scheme, a free birthday breakfast, early finish on Fridays, onsite canteen, free car park and opportunities for career progression.
Tiger Trailers is easily accessible by car, bus and train, and the company is looking to provide a private bus service to help new and existing employees travel to work should they need it.
Edward continued: “It’s a really exciting time to join the Tiger Trailers family because we’ve got huge growth plans which involve enhancing our CSR activities and transforming our internal communications. We’ve launched an employee appreciation wall to showcase everyone’s hard work, and partnered with non-profit organisations like Veterans into Logistics to help place ex-military personnel into truck driving roles.”
Tiger Trailers manufacturers between 1,500 and 2,000 trailers per year and hopes to create even more jobs at its Winsford site in early 2022.
