Aerotek announced last week it has been selected by Volkswagen to source approximately 300 new job openings at the auto company’s new plant in Chattanooga, Tenn. The openings are a result of the facility’s production of the 2012 Passat. Aerotek will provide the staffing and management of all contingent workforce employees at the operations plant in Chattanooga.
“Aerotek’s widespread, continued presence in the community ensures our ability to provide quality recruiting and staffing,” said Jim Campione, director of client delivery for Aerotek’s automotive staffing division. “We are excited to be supporting Volkswagen Group’s investment in manufacturing capabilities in the Chattanooga region and throughout North America.”
Volkswagen will invest $1 billion in the local economy for the Chattanooga, Tenn., plant and create more than 2,000 direct jobs in the region. According to independent studies, the new Volkswagen plant is expected to generate $12 billion in income growth and an additional 9,500 jobs related to the project.
Aerotek is a division of the Allegis Group, the largest staffing firm in the United States.
