Ninety exciting vacancies are still available as global can-making company Ball Corporation (‘Ball’) ramps up its recruitment drive ahead of the official opening of its Northamptonshire plant early next year.
Ball, the world’s leading manufacturer of infinitely recyclable aluminium drinks cans, has already recruited more than 60 new employees for its new plant near Kettering, with paid training underway in Northamptonshire and at the nearby Milton Keynes Ball Beverage Packaging plant.
To continue its recruitment drive, Ball is holding its third jobs fair of the year this Saturday, 16th July at Rushden Lakes, from 10am to 1pm.
Paulina Panus, HR Manager for Ball’s new Kettering plant, said:
“We’ve met many great people in Northamptonshire, many of whom have already become valued colleagues and as I speak are training with us, and looking forward to exciting careers in a stable industry that is growing fast.
“We’ve planned our next jobs fair at Rushden Lakes to happen on a Saturday, to give people who may be too busy in the week, an opportunity to find out more about us, and for us to find out more about them.”
Jason Bridger, Plant Manager of Ball’s new Kettering site, added:
“Before the end of the year, we aim to welcome 90 new colleagues. The new team will be working with our cutting-edge technology, and helping us to produce billions of aluminium cans, which are the world’s most recycled drinks containers. This is a fascinating business and a great place to start or to continue a career in sustainable manufacturing.”
Recruiting a diverse and local workforce is a priority for Ball. Jason added:
“We are seeking to recruit women as well as men and people of all backgrounds. We want to create an inclusive place of work, somewhere that embraces different views and voices.
“Experience and qualifications are not all that matters most to us. We can and will provide full training for those roles where we have the ability to do so. Our mission is to get the right people with the right behaviours, those who will thrive at Ball, who enjoy a challenge and love being part of a team. Please come along this Saturday to find out more.”
Ball’s new plant is located at SEGRO Park, Kettering Gateway, in North Northamptonshire. The highly advanced facility will produce the world’s most metal-efficient can, demanding 20% less energy and consuming 70% less water than during the traditional can making process.
