More Automotive Engineering Jobs

Posted on June 26, 2007  Comments (2)

I must say I am a bit skeptical but I am hardly an expert in forecasting automobile engineering jobs so maybe it is a good prediction, Study forecasts 300,000 more automotive engineering jobs worldwide by 2015:

According to a study by the Oliver Wyman consultancy group published in yesterday’s Die Welt newspaper, Car Innovation 2015, nearly 300,000 R&D engineering jobs will be created across the global automotive industry over the next eight years, bringing the total of such jobs to 1.1m, from the 813,000 in 2005.

Most of the new jobs will be with automotive suppliers, to whom assemblers are conferring more and more R&D responsibility, and the jobs will be concentrated in China, India, Eastern Europe and South Korea

    If Toyota resorts to cutting full-time staff, it will be the first time since 1950, when the automaker reduced 1,600 full-time jobs in Japan. Toyota, which runs seven auto plants in North America, employs 36,000 full-time workers in the region. The company has about 5,000 full-time staff in the United Kingdom. Toyota employs 316,000 full-time workers globally, including nearly 70,000 in Japan. More new jobs in the automotive engineers.

    I’d like to know the ins and outs of employment figures of the automative industry to-date, as although factories have closed-down in UK/Europe, they’ve relocated to areas such as Asia thus creating new jobs. I noted that Toyota have just created a handful of new jobs in the UK – so perhaps those predictions will be right after all!
