Wrightbus has announced it has begun recruiting staff again, following the acquisition by Bamford Bus Company last month. Local recruitment agencies Grafton and Industrial Temps have been appointed to assist in the speed of the process, moving to a comprehensive recruitment campaign for permanent contracts.

Wrightbus is currently recruiting for a range of production roles including coachbuilders, welders, paint prep and spray painters. In addition to these roles, with new technologies and people engagement in mind, the firm is also on the lookout for IT and HR talent.

The Ballymena-based bus builder will also be launching an engineering recruitment campaign. This will be phased in over the next few months with job advertisements already going live and successful candidates receiving phased start dates during late November, December, January and February 2020.

Buta Atwal, Wrightbus Chief Executive said: “In the near future it is not likely that the company will employ as many people as it did before it entered administration earlier this year. Over the longer term, it is of course our ambition to rebuild the company and ensure that Wrightbus is as big and successful as possible.

“We hope to attract the brightest and best talent to help us rebuild this great company and encourage anyone who is interested in the roles we are recruiting for to get in touch.”
