Tesla Giga Berlin continues its hardcore recruitment of new employees as it aims to ramp up production as soon as possible. According to the Minister of Economics of Brandenburg, the manufacturer hires about 500-600 people per month.
Tesla Giga Berlin will become the manufacturer's main production site for the European market. Having started mass production in March, the factory still has a lot of work to do in order to increase production, and for this, it will need thousands of employees. To do this, Tesla is working with a national employment agency that is trying to attract specialists who are no longer needed by German automakers and have been made redundant, as well as with others who have applied.
“The situation of carmakers in other regions realizing that the production of electric cars requires less people than they had in the past is helping us, because we are trying to bring them here to Brandenburg,” Brandenburg Economy Minister Jörg Steinbach said.
Over the past months, Tesla has significantly increased its efforts to attract employees. According to the minister, Tesla hires between 500 and 600 people a month at Giga Berlin. Hundreds of vacancies are active on the manufacturer's website, and this is only for the factory, not counting other locations. The main hiring takes place in areas such as Manufacturing, Engineering, and Operations.
According to Steinbach, Giga Berlin currently has up to 4,500 employees, the vast majority of whom are Germans. 10 percent of them are foreigners, mostly from Poland. This once again emphasizes the importance of the Tesla factory for the whole of Germany and its economy. As of now, employees work in two shifts, starting May 23. The third shift should be launched before the end of 2022.
