Global automotive technology leader ZF has rewarded 21 temporary workers with permanent contracts, starting as of November 1.
The staff, who were initially brought in to meet a demand in orders, were appointed through the Peterlee company’s recruitment partner, Ranstad Recruitment.
However, after impressing during their time with ZF, the 21 employees were offered permanent positions.
The roles are in production and warehousing.
ZF Peterlee is looking to attract more temporary workers to meet demand for the safety camera technology produced on site.
Lisa Hudson, HR Manager at ZF said: “Our temporary workers are an essential part of our day to day operations, recruited to meet peaks in production which occur at regular intervals throughout the year.
“The twenty one people who have earned themselves permanent jobs have each demonstrated an excellent work ethic and have become invaluable within the teams they’ve been supporting – which is why they’ve been rewarded with ZF contracts.
“It’s an incredibly busy time for the company and we are actively looking to recruit more temporary workers who can support the demand of global customer orders.”
John Cree, ZF Employee Council chairman, said: “The Employee Council works to protect the interests of all staff within ZF, and all of our reps are delighted that a further 21 agency employees have recently been rewarded with new contracts – we look forward to supporting them in the transition into permanent employment.”
ZF Peterlee, which employs over 1,000 people, is a worldwide leader in the production of camera safety technology, with millions of pounds of investment committed in the last few years to support the continued growth of the market.
